Some users opening their Instagram apps will notice the number of likes, typically displayed under users’ posts will no longer be visible.
Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, announced on Wednesday that some users in seven countries will not be able to see the number of likes that other users’ pictures have received or the number of times that other people’s videos have been viewed.
Users will still be able to see the number of likes and views their own posts have received.
A spokesperson for Instagram told TIME that they were testing out the change because “we want your followers to focus on the photos and videos you share, not how many likes they get.”
The reaction online was mixed with many people replying to the company saying that “no one wanted this” change.
Instagram told TIME that they first implemented the test with users in Canada last May. “We’re expanding the test to a number of countries to get a better sense of how the experience resonates with Instagram’s global community.”
This news comes in the wake of Instagram introducing a slew of new tools and policies to prevent bullying on the app. The website introduced a tool called Restrict which allows users to better control how others contact them and interact with their accounts. Instagram also announced on Thursday that it will now alert users when their accounts are at risk of being disabled.
