Instagram is getting rid of its “like” feature … but don’t worry, this is just a trial run and it’s only going to affect some users in the United States.
IG CEO Adam Mosseri made the announcement that’s sure to cause anxiety for some folks Friday at WIRED25 … explaining the platform will experiment with hiding likes for US-based accounts starting next week.
The social media giant has already tested the same thing in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan and New Zealand … and it’s finally coming to America.
