OREANDA-NEWS. Facebook will begin to test the function of hiding likes under messages, similar to the one that is already running in Instagram and VKontakte.  The creators of the social network want to draw the attention of users to the content of posts, and not their statistics.

 According to TechCrunch, the first prototype of the new feature in the Facebook Android application was discovered by reverse engineering specialist Jane Machung Wong.

 The Facebook press service told Techcrunch that they were considering testing for hiding likes, refusing to give a start date for testing.

 In early August, VKontakte also began testing disabling likes in the news feed.  The experiment involved a small part of users.
