How to see likes on Instagram
Instagram continues to have a lot of success among users, especially among the youngest. The interactions within the social network are in fact constantly growing and the introduction of new features is always a very welcome fact. Despite these positive points, however, in recent times, the platform has changed some of its “cornerstones”. For example, the way you can see likes on Instagram has changed.
This change, to be honest, hasn’t really been loved by users. they are found without a concrete method to check the likes posted by others. Precisely for this reason, in the tutorial that follows, I wanted to deepen the matter, in order to show you what you can do today to analyze the likes posted by you, your followers or a person you follow. If you too were a bit confused by the changes in the social network, then, you just have to dedicate a few minutes of your time to me, so that I can “find the key to the problem”.
How Instagram likes work
First, we need to focus on how Instagram likes work . The modification of their use, as I told you, has created a real “earthquake” among users, who have felt a little disoriented by this new mode.
You can still put and receive likes on Instagram , without too many limitations. This time, however, these will remain invisible in the notification screen, as the “Follow Already” section has been removed .
Precisely, the like on Instagram, but the detail is shown only to creators , so that they can analyze the performance of their posts (via Insight).
Therefore, if you want to analyze the likes placed on posts published by other users, you will have to use alternative methods. A bit like when you want to see who has viewed the Instagram videos.
If, on the other hand, you were the author of a post , then, you could always consult the number of I like it, using most of the procedures outlined below. I remind you, however, that the names of the people who interacted with your post could be positioned according to different criteria (so they will not always be in chronological order). More information on this topic, you can find by reading more about the order of Instagram likes.
How to see your likes on Instagram
There is a specific section in the app that allows you to view all the Instagram likes that have put themselves on the photos and videos posted by the users you follow.
To access it, open Instagram and go to the page dedicated to your profile . Here, press on the three lines (present at the top right) and then select the item Settings . Now, tap on Account and then click on Posts you like .
In the screen that opens, you will find the complete list posts you’ve liked over time. For more information on this section, see the guide dedicated to how to see the posts I like on Instagram.
How to see someone’s likes on Instagram
Until recently, it was relatively easy to see another person’s Instagram likes , because this information was automatically entered into the Activity log of the social network (accessible by tapping the heart-shaped icon at the bottom of the application). It was enough to follow a user, be it a friend, a partner, a family member, a child or even a stranger, to view his activities and his interactions with other Pages or profiles. Currently, however, this option is no longer available , probably for privacy reasons.
So how do you look at the details of other people’s hearts? Well, to accomplish this goal, you will need to use alternative methods. The first option available to you is to manually control social interactions : if you think that two users exchange likes, the easiest way to find out is to “keep an eye on” the comments . In this way, you could easily verify if the two profiles interact with each other and how often.
Alternatively, you could look at the Facebook Like detail , the social platform on which, often, Instagram posts and stories also appear. If you had the possibility to access a person’s Facebook profile and see their wall, then, you could analyze the reactions and comments that have been posted by friends or followers.

About published stories
The Instagram stories have always been the most used content on the social network. This is due to their versatility and their customization. Despite this, however, at present, there is still no possibility to like a story.
You should know that Instagram stories only count views and that these are shown in the lower part of the screen, that is in the order of views of the Instagram stories.
As surely you have noticed, however, it is also possible to send reactions . These are represented by some emojis or hearts , and give the possibility to let the creator know if the content he posted is liked or not.

In the first case, just search and access the profile of the Page in question. From there, you can find out the number of followers by looking at the word

App to see Likes on Instagram
Following the elimination of the number of Instagram likes posted by other people, several third-party applications have been developed with the intention of being able to circumvent this limit. In fact, since this feature has been removed from Instagram, services of this type are now useless.
Moreover, remember that these apps could reduce (by far) the security of your Instagram profile. So try to always be very careful about false promises: don’t get caught up in the frenzy.
See Like Instagram without account
You can view Instagram likes without logging in or even without being registered . This can be done in a very simple way, that is browsing from browser on the social network site.
I remind you, however, that in this way you will have the possibility to see only the I like detail of public Instagram profiles . As for the private profiles, on the other hand, you could create a second, somewhat anonymous Instagram account, to be accepted and viewed in this way the posts published, and consequently, the likes that have been placed.

Don’t-show Instagram Likes
Do you want to disable the display of likes for one or more users? If your account is public, actually, anyone could read the details. In this case, there are two solutions:
- Blocking of the Instagram user – so as to avoid showing him all the photos and videos published;
- Activation of the private Instagram profile – so as to prevent strangers from viewing your posts, and therefore also the detail of the likes (not recommended if you want to increase the audience of your profile).
If, on the other hand, you don’t want to show the likes you put on others , don’t worry: Instagram has already thought of it . As I already told you above, the social network has increased the level of privacy by removing the “Follow already” section.
