According to Mosseri, this update will be very useful for IG Story creators and general users. IG Story creators won’t be bothered by a flood of DMs.

“Recipients of likes cannot see the number of likes they get. While givers like, their identity will not be revealed. Likes will appear as a heart icon only in the Story view,” said Mosseri.

“We’re just making sure that people can express more support for each other, but there’s also no need to send DMs,” he said.
