Facebook and Instagram have officially introduced an option to allow its users the ability to hide like counts, great news for those discouraged by not getting enough on their posts.
The new feature comes with two options for the user. You will be able to select whether to hide the like counts only on your posts so that others can’t see them or hide all like counts from your news feed.
According to Facebook, the feature has been made optional because it may be “beneficial to others and annoying for some”
To hide the like counts on your posts, you’ll need to hit the three-dot menu (Options menu) on each of your posts and click “Hide Like Count.” To hide all like counts in your news feed, go to Settings > Privacy > Posts > Hide Like and View Counts
