Just shared your post in the Buffer Slack community I'm in! We're talking about the new testing Instagram is doing on making likes on posts private. You have great timing. It's funny that now I'm in a few conversations about this.
But if likes are private how will I know what makes me happy in life? 😏
I'm uncertain if hiding them changes the gamification, since an author will still see how many likes they get.
However, it likely impacts The Internet Lottery
Haha, I actually am perfectly fine with Instagram how it is. I enjoy the likes. I get out of it exactly what I put into it, and all those things are positive. I think they should have tested it out on April 1st for 24 hours. That would have been really interesting to see, lol.
Yea, you also posted that article on my other comment. I'm not I really if I agree with it, however.
Sorry for spamming you with the same link. You don't need to agree, in fact, go ahead and disagree, and disagree loudly!
...and be sure to link to the original so I can collect more internet points. I'm close to levelling up I think! :)
No worries, I understand. I'm sure you get +50 EXP points for every time you link it.
