Users could soon hide ‘like’ counts on Instagram, Facebook

Facebook says it’s going to test out — again — an option for users to hide those “like”  counts to see if it can reduce the pressure of being on social media. Instagram, which Facebook owns, will soon allow a small group of random users to decide whether or not they want to see the number of likes their posts and those of others receive. While at first this option will only be on Instagram, the social media giant says it’s also exploring the feature for Facebook.
