Instagram To Start Hiding Like Counts On Users Posts In The US From Next Week
Adam Mosseri, the CEO of Instagram has announced the App will start hiding 'like' counts on users’ posts in the United States starting from next week.
The announcement was made at the WIRED25 conference in San Francisco on Friday, 9th of November, 2019. 
“We will make decisions that hurt the business if they help people’s well-being and health,” Mosseri said on stage at the event, Wired’s Adrienne So reported.
According to So, Instagram will hide like counts only for certain users in the United States and it’s a part of a test that the company has already begun in some other countries as it responds to critics and tries to create a ” less pressured environment ” on the platform, especially forcing people to start using an Instagram growth service.

The test which first started in Canada has also been done in  Ireland, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand. Facebook is also running a test of hiding like counts in Australia.

Meanwhile, Nigerian border closure might cause network interruptions, telecom companies warn.
