The ‘likes’ work as incentives for users who share content on social networks, but sometimes encouraged the publication of contents little authentic, sensitive or dangerous in favour of improving the number of reactions that get.
Limited counter display ‘like Me’
Wong says that Instagram plans that his followers will focus more on images that share that in the amount of reactions that receive its publications, which probably would elevate the quality of the images that are shared.
The display of the timer to ‘like’ will be limited only to the person who shared the image, as part of the figures to measure the interactions and the way you manage your profile.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for Instagram said that at this time they are not «proving» such implementation, but to «explore ways to reduce the pressure on Instagram» is something that always take into account the development of new features.
