Instagram is introducing a new feature called Private Story Likes, which allows you to like someone’s Instagram Story without sending them a direct message. Previously, every comment you wrote to someone about a Story, whether an emoji or a full-fledged message, appeared as a response in their DM inbox; with this new feature, you may offer some gratitude for a Story without filling up the user’s DMs.
“So now, when you walk through Stories, there will be a heart icon between the message and that little paper aircraft,” Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri stated in a video. “And if you touch on it, it’ll send a like to the author of that story, and that like will appear in the viewer sheet, not in your DM thread with them.”
Notably, Stories will not include like counts, which is a significant departure from the strategy taken by Instagram for users’ main feeds. Instagram (which is now part of Meta) tested concealing like counts on the main feed for more than two years before deciding to leave them up by default, but users can choose to hide them on their posts.
There is no public count for likes on Stories, but you can check who left a like on your Stories by viewing the view sheet. “The goal here is to ensure that individuals can show more support for one another while also cleaning up DMs a little bit,” Mosseri explained.
