Here’s why I don’t give a hoot about the Instagram like removal thing. ⠀

1. Instagram is a free platform that we get to use to promote our businesses and make money. If we have to adapt to changes then so be it. 🤷‍♀️ ⠀ ⠀ 2. It shouldn’t be a “liking game” in the first place. How often do people just scroll through liking posts without even really looking at them? Or furiously liking everything they can to boost engagement? Removing likes will remove that element and allow people to just take time to enjoy the content. ⠀ ⠀ 3. I post to share my interests, ideas, and build brand awareness. Yes, I want to grow but the core reason why I use this app at all is to create content, not to get likes. ⠀ ⠀ I don’t think that removing likes is going to tank everyone’s business, I think it might actually help create more of a level playing field. ⠀ ⠀ What are your thoughts on this change? I’d love to know what you think!
