Last month, former Bachelor star Tiffany Scanlon revealed her sad reality of having to compete with other social media influencers for likes on Instagram.
But it looks like the reality star may finally get a fair chance on the social media app, following its latest update – hiding the total amount of likes a photo has.
‘I really hope this testing is a success and becomes a permanent change,’ the former reality star wrote on her Instagram story on Thursday.
Bravo Instagram! Bachelor’s Tiffany Scanlon is hopeful after not having to compete with other influencers for Instagram ‘likes’… following the app’s new update which hides total likes
In June, the blonde complained that users would rather ‘like’ shots of ‘a girl in a bikini’ rather than the ‘meaningful content’ she publishes.
During her social media rant, the former ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ star mused:
‘Haven’t posted in one week and it’s been nice. I’ve felt super disheartened by Instagram lately – a combination of an unexplained decline in engagement and the research I’ve been doing about the platform.

‘I’m also frustrated with myself for letting something so fickle as ‘likes’ even get to me,’ she added.
Tiffany said she believes fans favour ‘picture-perfect’ posts over ‘real’ content.
‘I’m having a whinge but when I see posts that are of a girl in a bikini with a caption of the sun emoji ☀️ getting thousands of likes, and I try so hard to post meaningful content, I really can’t help but feeling it is pointless even bothering,’ she wrote.
