We want your friends to focus on the photos and videos you share, not how many likes they get. You can still see your own likes by tapping on the list of people who've liked it, but your friends will not be able to see how many likes your post has received.— Instagram (@instagram) July 17, 2019
We’re looking forward to learning more about how this change might benefit everyone’s experience on Instagram.— Instagram (@instagram) July 17, 2019
Instagram announced yesterday that they are running a test in a few countries which hides the likes and views (in case of videos) count for public viewing. You will be able to see the likes and views on your own posts, but other people will not.
Assumption is that if the test is successful, it will be implemented worldwide.
