Instagram removed the like counter for Australian users in 2019, saying the move was to “ ease the pressure ” when posting photos.

The personal trainer, 30, shared a step-by-step guide on how to get the counter back that shows exactly how many likes a message has received.

“ For those in my DMs who asked how I got the feature, I just updated my app, ” he said, adding that he’d been notified of the update through a pop-up notification.
After several followers sent messages that the feature was not yet available or accessible to all users, Michael apologized.
“My bad guys … not even Martha has it,” he said.
‘My bad all … even Martha doesn’t have it’: Michael soon realized it was a beta feature only offered to select Instagram users before the official rollout
In the beta feature, which was rolled out to select users on April 14, Instagram allows Aussies to decide for themselves if they want to see the likes on their posts.
Michael joked afterwards that he had revealed an industry secret and angered Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, owner of Instagram.
Realizing that I gave away an Insta secret and went on Mark Zuckerberg’s best friends list, he signed a video of himself in a state of apparent distress.
