What? Advertisers don't rely on public facing metrics to verify that the person/company you're paying isn't lying to you. Real metrics would be on the back end and advertisers would surely have access to those.
Okay cool, I asked whether they’d have access to back end metrics I n my first post in this thread but nobody really acknowledged that part of my post 😅

Just hide the followers already or don't let them be viewed but show the number. that's all I ask

I'd love this. Lord knows sometimes I don't post a really good picture because it won't get many likes. Only my selfies seem to get a ton of likes, and not my nature pics. :/

This is a great idea because it’s a smart way to get people who have few likes to start posting and feeling less conscious about themselves

Yeah this is kinda why I don't post anything on there outside of stories anymore. I find taking pictures of everything more interesting than selfies but the selfies take all of the likes

I probably wouldn't have noticed the change 'cause I just read comments on my posts. I'm totally down with the change. I really don't get anything out of likes. On twtter, I mute threads if one of my tweets gets liked a lot.

Yeah it’s for the better. It’s can become an unhealthy obsession.

In fact I wouldn’t even mind if they hid it from everyone, including the person who shared it. Just get rid of them all together.

You can still see likes if you use a pc to look at the account. And video views.

nothing more than an attempt to encourage advertisers to advertise so you don’t feel like your ad is underperforming compared to someone else
