Instagram is carrying out another element it calls Private Story Likes, which allows you to like someone’s Insta Story without sending them a DM. Already, any reaction you shipped off somebody about a Story regardless of whether it was an emoticon or an all-out message displayed as a reaction in their DM inbox; with this new element, you can show some appreciation for a Story without obstructing the client’s DMs.
Instagram head Adam Mosseri said “So presently, as you go through Stories, between send message and that little paper plane, there will be a heart symbol,” He also said in a video. “Also assuming you tap on it, it’ll send the writer of that story a like, and that like will appear in the watcher sheet, not in your DM string with them.”
For likes on Stories, you won’t see a public count, however you can see who left a like on your Stories when you take a gander at a Story’s view sheet. “The idea here is make sure that people can express more support for each other, but also to clean up DMs a little bit,” Mosseri said.
