Remember back in the day, cough 2019, when Instagram announced it was going to test out hiding likes? Yeah.
If you don't remember let me help catch you up. Instagram decided to test out hiding the likes starting back in 2019 that you see likes on others posts. It's supposed to help the app become a less pressurized environment for users.
Now, flash forward to 2021.
Last night Instagram users in the US got a notification that they won't be able to see likes anymore.
Apparently, Instagram "accidentally" added more people to the test. The likes for these people should be back again soon!
