Can we calm down about the whole like count thing now?

In case you have no idea what I’m referring to:

Instagram announced it’s will not display the number of likes on user posts. My accounts have just switched over. If yours haven’t, they may soon.

Many have been freaking out, bemoaning that it will hurt their platform, but the reality is this:

Nothing has really changed.

You are still able to see your like count.

People who view your posts can see that people like it, can even click in to see who AND could count the number of people if they really wanted to.

You still get all your stats (if you have a business account).

Nothing has really changed, except for one tiny little number display.

Carry on, creators.
