Social networking services
The Facebook-owned Instagram app plans to eliminate the number of likes seen under posts for some users in the United States. The goal of the move is to reduce competition between people in the photo and video sharing service, Bloomberg writes.
The social network Facebook is considering hiding its like counter, TechCrunch reported.
The magazine notes that tests for this feature have already started on Instagram in seven countries, including Canada and Brazil. Instead of the total number of likes, users are shown only a few names of mutual friends who liked the post.
Instagram stopped working. Users from Europe and North America say that information on the social network is not updated.
Facebook, Messenger and Instagram have collapsed again.
New posts are not displayed in profiles, and users can only see old posts if the story is visible at all.
Thus, the problem may not be noticed immediately and everything looks normal.
