Det ble en liten instapause mens vi hadde besøk. Men nå kjente jeg at jeg fikk litt abstinenser og savnet dere😂. Jeg ligger på lading, for jammen tar det på med fint besøk fra Bodø, men ååååå så fint vi har hatt det😍. Jeg er blitt beriket med strekk i skinken🍑 Strekk i armen, nye blåveiser på bena, kuler på hver kneskål, forslått nese (ikke spørr) gangsperr i magen og mange fine minner selvsagt😂 Nå blir det lading frem til avreise til Spania om under 2 uker🤸🏻♂️🌴☀️👙 Ja og så har jeg jo en mor som fyller 100/2, og det må jo selvsagt feires med stil🥂 Nilading denne uken!😅

You might have heard that IG is hiding likes on a picture in some countries now. Only you can see how many people liked your picture. Others can't. Right now they are only testing it, e.g. in Canada, Australia and Italy. With the best of intentions... the idea is this will take the pressure of getting likes, and put the focus back on content.
The positive side I see is that this removes some bias. Because pictures which got a lot of likes are easier attracting even more likes (must be good since so many liked it before me...). And pictures with low likes struggle to get more (oh no likes... can't be good, right?) So it will remove at least some of this confirmation bias.
If it makes IG less competitive I doubt. It will just shift the metrics. People will find a different way to compare themselves to others. They always do.
It may even make IG a lonier place as people will still see their own likes. If they have what they see as not enough likes and low self-esteem, they will automatically think that everyone else has more likes. They will not be able to reassure themselves anymore that other similar accounts may be going through the same. They cannot see it.
I may be alone with this view. It comes from having taught at a correspondence university. The main challenge there was to make students see that struggling with the material was normal and ok and expected, and that they were not alone. They gave up much easier than at a normal uni. Not because they were studying on the side after work or after putting their kids to bed. They were highly motivated. They gave up because they were not able to talk to others and interact daily to see they were just like all the others... struggling but doing ok. That this was normal (this was before social media...). They could not compare themselves to the other students.
What are your thoughts?
