Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, had experimented with not publicly showing ‘Likes’ on posts in a number of countries. These included Australia, Ireland, and Italy. The photo-sharing app is now going to test this in a small part of the U.S. boss Adam Mosseri revealed. Mr. Dorsey signaled his approval for the move on Saturday. He said it was a “great step” in a Tweet. He has previously indicated that Twitter has considered similar moves – not killing of the Like button altogether, but stopping them from being publicly viewable (via Business Insider).
