I don’t know how to feel about this. Instagram is doing away with “like” counts on profiles starting this week. Users will be able to see who likes their pics and videos but the count won’t appear on their page for others to see. Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri made the announcement last week to mixed reviews.

“It’s about young people. The idea is about trying to depressurize Instagram, make it less of a competition, give people more space to focus on connecting with people that they love, things that inspire them,” Mosseri told WIRED25.
