ICYMI: You can now hide the like counts on Facebook
Do you always mind how many likes and reactions your Facebook posts receive? If so, you can now get rid of the like and reaction counts on your Facebook newsfeed. Yes, you read that right! You may hide the like and reaction counts on your own posts and from other accounts too. However, do note that Facebook will continue to show them in places likes Marketplace and reels.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to both hide the like and reaction counts on your Facebook app.
In the Facebook app, open the “Menu” screen by tapping the three-line icon.
On the Menu page, scroll down all the way down and tap “Settings & Privacy,” then “Settings.”
Under “Preferences,” tap “Reaction preferences.”
Thereafter, Facebook will open the “Reaction Preferences” page. On this page, to hide like counts from your own posts, toggle on the “On Your Posts” option. And to hide the like and reaction counts for posts from other users, toggle on the “On Posts from Others” option.
There you go! Your likes and reaction counts are now disabled in your Facebook account.
Don’t worry, you can always switch back later if you decide you want the likes and reaction counts to be visible again just access the same “Reaction Preferences” page in the Facebook app.
