The social network, Instagram, had rolled out a test of hiding like counts on user posts in a total of seven countries. In an announcement today, Instagram stated its decision to expand the feature to a global audience. This comes after the social network had decided to test the feature in the U.S.
In the earlier post, Instagram accounts chosen for the test will be unable to view like counts on other users posts, save the fact that they will see like counts related to their post. This is confirmed in a tweet by the Social Network company.
Facebook is as well testing out the same feature in Australia.
