Nicki Minaj says she will stop using Instagram if ‘likes’ are no longer visible. The social media photo sharing site recently revealed plans to hide how many people have liked a post for everyone but the owner of it. Users will no longer be able to see how many people have liked a photo, unless they are the ones posting it – so essentially no-one will be able to brag about how many likes they’re getting. Many have applauded the decision as one to help people combat the pressures of social media and being ‘successful’ online. Yet Nicki, 36, has said she will refuse to use Instagram if this function is removed because she doesn’t think it makes the app any ‘better’. The Superbass singer, who currently has 107 million followers on Instagram, tweeted: ‘I’m not posting on IG after this week cuz they removing the likes. Hmmmm what should I get into now?
‘Think of all the time I’ll have with my new life.
‘They took away your engagements in the first place by disrupting the algorithm. Then they boost it to show you how much better this new iPhone is. ‘I mean how much better this new IG feature is. – lemme guess, u don’t believe your iPhone messes up when the new iPhone comes out… ‘
