The official line is that it is designed to "reduce the pressure" on users and increase the focus on the content itself, rather than the numbers that it generates.
"We want your friends to focus on the photos and videos you share, not on the number of likes they get.You can always see your tastes by tapping the list of people who 's like them. liked, but your friends will not be able to see how many messages have been received by your message, "says the company tweeted.
As expected, people have been using Twitter to share their feelings, perhaps simply because they are already suffering from a total disclaimer, and Twitter favorites are still one thing.
Not everyone was a fan, the subject being in vogue around the world in a few hours.
Someone does not think about influencers?
But many people liked it, whether for a more streamlined look or to free from the shame of a non liked content.
The positive effect that could have on mental health, especially among younger users, was noted:
While others envisioned other methods to consolidate their fragile ego.
Others have pointed out that motivations may (and this may shock you) be less than pure.
And yes, the now mandatory chorus of CUT THIS FOLY AND GIVE US THE CHRONOLOGICAL TIME.
Fortunately, there is still a way to make sure everyone knows that your work is working: you just have to give the numbers manually.
Or simply, you know, lie.
Of course, even if this change is applied permanently to the entire platform, they are not going anywhere. The only thing that gets deleted is the number displayed publicly. You can always see if your #sydneyunset epic stunt at your workplace has had 15 likes or 500 – you simply will not know if it's more or less than the identical 17 that your friends have posted.
In other words, for individual users, the amount of dopamine retained remains unchanged, but the loss of consciousness to see others is less of a problem for those who are likely to suffer such things.
But it is interesting to note how many people think that if their tastes are not visible publicly, they may just as well be there.
