San Francisco: Facebook is set to begin a test for hiding Likes on Friday, making the number of reactions, views and Likes visible only to a post’s author.
The test will first begin in Australia, the social media giant confirmed on Thursday.
“We are running a limited test where like, reaction and video view counts are made private across Facebook,” a company spokesperson told CNET in an email statement on Thursday.
Facebook added that it would “gather feedback to understand whether this change will improve people’s experiences”.
The reason behind removing likes from view was aimed at reducing social pressure among the users.
The move follows a similar test Facebook started running on Instagram earlier this year.
