Facebook begins to hide the ‘Like’ in Australia

Facebook has started the tests in Australia to hide from the public view the count of ‘Like’ and other metrics in the social network, which can only be consulted by the owner of the profile.

In early September, researcher Jane Manchun Wong said that Facebook had started internal tests to hide the ‘Like’ counter and other Reactions on the social network, as she discovered in the Android application code.

This Thursday, the technology company has confirmed to The New York Times that it has taken another step and has begun testing in Australia to hide the ‘Like’ count, video views and other metrics from the publications. These counters will remain for the private consultation of the account user.

Company spokesman Jimmy Raimo explained to the aforementioned media that this test will help them know the response of users and if it could help improve their experience. It is not known at the moment if from Facebook they intend to extend the test to other countries.
