How would you feel if the world can’t see the number of likes you’re getting on your Instagram posts, but you can! at least that’s the understanding from what the photo-sharing platform CEO Adam Mosseri, announced at a Wired event in San Francisco on Friday .
“Right now we’re testing making like counts private so you’ll be able to see all the likes you’re getting on a photo of yours or a video of yours, but no one else will,” Mosseri said. “[We’re testing it] in seven countries, including Brazil and Japan and Canada, and we’re actually announcing that we’re going to start testing in the US next week. Not the whole US at once.”
Mixed feelings here, it could easily be outrage for some and a relief for others. What do you think?
