PHILADELPHIA - Social media lit up after Instagram accidentally hid the number of likes from posts for some users Tuesday night.
So what exactly happened? Turns out, it’s a bug they encountered during a test, which is an expansion of an ongoing test the social media company started in 2019.
Instagram is working to fix the issue as soon as possible.
"We've been testing a new experience to hide likes on Feed posts. We unintentionally added more people to the test today, which was a bug — we’re fixing this issue and restoring like counts to those people as soon as possible," Instagram said in a statement.
