Instagram Reels allows you to share short videos on the social media platform as a competitor of TikTok. Increasingly popular, Instagram Reels was recently criticized for highlighting the number of likes and views.
Goodbye to LIKE AND VIEWS
According to the news from ShiftDelete; Instagram is gearing up to take an important step to demonstrate that the platform’s Reels feature doesn’t just focus on likes and views. According to the information received, the number of likes and views on Instagram Reels will be hidden.
NO MORE NUMBERS
According to a post shared by Alessandro Paluzzi on Twitter, Instagram is working to hide Reels’ number of likes and views. As a result, Reels’ posts will no longer contain numbers in the likes and comments sections.

It can be said that posts with a high number of likes are much more likely to receive new likes. As a matter of fact the chances of other shares are less against the videos with high likes in the reels section. With this new feature, Instagram aims to please users without being influenced.
THE “FULL PAGE” FUNCTION IS IN THE TEST PHASE
Instagram has also begun testing the new full-screen homepage view. In addition, work continues to show video and reel shares in full screen. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the new feature with an Instagram post.
At this stage, it’s still unclear when Instagram’s new features will be fully available.
