    I started seeing it last week on several of my accounts

    I knew I wasn't tripping. They must have started to test it.

    IG models are gonna loose a lot of there sponsors. on a personal level millennials would be devastated the most not having likes to let them determine how they are liked,

    How will up and coming artists get noticed without likes and views? I read online that they are removing video views as well... this is crazy and will become a terrible way for up and coming people to promote... will Facebook be the new wave? Or will twitter??....

    A large followers count will still stand out and shout hubs still are going to show relevant info to select and hire a service.

    ------------------------------------

    So far I can see everything displayed as always, maybe using a foreign US ip would still do the trick. I'll let you know guys.

    -----------------------------------

    Don't panic, there will always be a way :devil:

    Shhh don't tempt them...
    It's the only service they can't mess with - that's why it's cheap on SMM panels & IG still has users ;) **sorry, you viewing instagram videos is risking the community, please try again later**

    20 minutes later:
    "hello tik tok"

    Jokes aside..
    My likes are hidden on my main accounts (I live in a country where it's hidden :smirk:)

    But I'll be happy to shed some breaking NEWS

    You should be able to view likes still for market research, via. "Desktop view" on your mobile device, while logging in and visiting the iG website (for explore, profiles, home feed, hashtags, etc.)




    Screenshot_2019-11-06-11-03-35(1).png


    The test will end in USA, Unless people's hunger for "likes" is actually a myth and instagram is really targeting panels main source of income (likes per post)

    Exactly, and I wonder if panels will become more useful since instagram will think they stopped their income source, and they focus on the algorithm & unique feeds

    Listen, there's already news articles exposing celebs for not posting ever since Instagrams crack down before the summer started lmao

    And they may deserve it. Instagram models made us hate titties *Chris Delia voice*

    Jokes aside, I think it'll impact influencers and businesses most. You won't be able to distinguish who is trustable and who's not, if you're the avg. Dummy Joe. You'll just pay the wrong people and get scammed, while your favorite content creators leave for other apps which show them more organic reach and the likes they deserve to flaunt to the public. Going viral could've changed your life... It was a lottery which was humble & giving to everyone.... Now it's gone. Now there's no hype over going viral because noone knows.

    The solution?
    Get alot of comments to stand out...

    If they hide all the numbers?
    Game over IMO...


    This is exactly my point I tried to get accross in my replies above - just in other words... Thanks!

    They're giving power to the Chinese tik tok government

    I agree! But we are BHnation... Not everybody is privileged to have access to the knowledge we do. As I mentioned above, the avg. Joe will just go to another app if enjoying feed & interacting / growing is difficult, IMO

    I would suggest it.
    To Advertise on tik tok just go to their website & scroll to the bottom,
    Or begin your organic journey until public softwares allow you to build an army in 2020

    ALMIGHTY GOD - OH GOD...
    Please have mercy on their souls,
    Have mercy..

    SHOW THEM THE LIGHT!
    Out of these dark times... Almighty lord..
    GOD SHALL NEVER LET YOU WONDER
    Without a purpose.. keep on searching for a way... Amen..

    But IMO instagram would be the #1 service sold since there's only 1 category for every other service (more important / sold services have lots of options and many categories)

    Smm panels offer tik tok services such as views, likes, comments, and followers. Would you suggest this?

    Nope. Unless you have your own farm. It's going look so fake if you have 1k likes from one accounts and 1k comments from other and 1k views from others.


    Also yay I don't need to worry about being called having "fake followers" if my engagement is under 10% on the spam(slaves) accounts.

    Thank you, I completely agree.
    Let me expand....


    Let's say you order public proxies?
    Would you use this?
    HM.
    Why?
    Okay.
    Why would you also use public SMM panels?
    Can you control their abuse/quality/location/etc.?
    Can you control what they also engage on (aka porn)?
    Can you hold these accounts to be high quality and only interact with your database?

    Nobody can give me a good enough answer to this to prove its beneficial and any better than public proxies other than the fact 1 is free & 1 isn't. They're both public. On your profile right now & on another profile in a moment.

    Maybe treat your SMMarketing similar to a girl :)
    What's better..
    A groupie or a loyal girl who's only for you?

    Eh that would make my clients not care anymore and agents would loose alot business.

    If you can control it and your accounts aren't banned a lot , you will rank new accounts fast. It's not really worth the effort and the headaches though. I'd rather do shoutouts and not worry about my likes being counted as fake. It's only good short term(if you own the farm and they are niche related) for new slave accounts but long term it's a huge headache.
