Facebook has added a new feature that allows users to hide the number of likes and other reactions on their posts.
And in this article, I will show you how to hide reactions and likes on your Facebook posts on your computer and on any Android device.
How to Hide Facebook Reaction and Like Count on Computer
Let’s start with a tutorial for PC users.
STEP 1: Log in to your Facebook account and then select the arrow in the top right corner.
STEP 2: Choose the Settings and Privacy option and go to the News Feed Preferences.
STEP 3: Now, click on the Reaction preferences.
STEP 4: A new pop-up window will appear when you need to toggle on the sliders next to On posts from others or On your posts, or both.
There is no need to save the changes because Facebook will save them automatically.

How to Hide Likes and Views on Your Instagram Post
