Before we get into this, the numbers,  when it comes to people's activity,  on FACEBOOK are ASTONISHING!!! Check this out.......Over 35 million users update their status each day, with more than 55 million status updates each day. Over 2.5 billion pictures are uploaded to Facebook each month

No matter what generation you belong to, FACEBOOK has basically become part of everyday life, ranking up there with eating, sleeping and oh yeah.......BREATHING!!!!

Sadly, our social status and popularity are determined by the amount of followers we have and more specifically, the 'LIKES' we recieve on the content that is posted on our page.  We have become 'LIKE' ADDICTS!!!!!

Let me pose a HYPOTHETICAL question.....As a 'LIKE' addict, WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THE 'LIKE' COUNT MIRACOUSLY DISAPPEARS? HOW WILL YOU SURVIVE??  WILL PEOPLE LIKE YOU??

The question is not so hypothetical anymore because change MIGHT be coming!  

(above is a dramatization of a like addicts reaction to the news)

Well HERE IT IS!!!  If you're really worried about your Facebook likes you might want to find something else to focus on. The company is trying to find out if users prefer like, reaction, and video counts to be hidden from posts, and they're now testing that out for users.

DON'T WORRY JUST YET....... these counts aren't completely gone, they're just private to everyone except the author of the post.  I know what you are thinking.... "What the hell is the point?? How will my followers know how popular I am?? Buying my likes won't work anymore!!" (shocking but yeah people ACTUALLY do that....you have a 1000 friends and 200k likes. COME ON....do the math!!)   Here is the silver lining in all of this.....testing is only being done in AUSTRALIA right now, BUT if the test proves successful, "hidden" like counts could roll out, GLOBALLY!!!.

UHHHH OHHHHHH.....Facebook/Instagram MODELS and INFLUENCERS.....you might wanna get your resume together!!!!!
