What if you didn't know how many likes a particular photo had on Instagram? Well, that may be possible in the future. According to engineer Jane Wong, who used reverse engineering to parse the Instagram application code, it may be possible in the future.
According to your review Instagram is working on a version of the app that doesn't show users how many likes their photos have.
A personal opinion on Instagram Likes
Instagram is one of my favorite applications, but I have to admit that I have gradually been less and less fond of this platform and the ideology that surrounds it. Certainly because I'm not a lover of likes. Certainly because I don't believe it defines who you are. Or because I believe that Likes should not guide our tendencies and passions.
The truth is that we increasingly see young people obsessed with likes and comments. Society should not look at life this way. I fully believe that the world would be much happier if we shared our content without the "pressure" of having people like what we do.
I have lived under the pressure of numbers and it is not good for anyone. Being constantly on the lookout for new trends and ideas of reaching out to new people is not healthy. That's why lately we've changed EBox Instagram a little bit. We have published more photos of what we like (photography) and published news stories that we believe our followers will like too. By the way, be free to follow EBox Instagram if you think it adds value to your life.
What could the future of Instagram look like?
The user who posted the photo will continue with the information, but in the feed display will not tell other users whether or not that photo is "popular".
According to an Instagram executive, the company is "constantly working to explore ways to reduce user pressure."
Needless to say, Likes are important to many users of the app. The likes make influencers more popular. Likes has been determining what is socially accepted. Unfortunately this is the reality in which we live. Likes, shares, and comments are increasingly important to the new generation.
Thus, this new measure may soften this ideology a little. However, I do not think this will come true. At least for now. How many "influencers"would they leave the platform if they failed to show how" influential "they are?
