You Will Love When Instagram Removes Likes

You Will Love When Instagram Removes Likes

Vanity metrics such as “likes” and followers” are crippling creative people and narrowing down the type of content they are willing to produce. Once you see one type of content outperforming the rest of your posts, people tend to go one dimensional and only make that piece of content, which hurts creativity and the platform.

  1. For businesses who use influencers and pages for marketing it'll be hard to evaluate and audit their stats. So it could hurt business wise. Personal wise it's good

  2. Do you have podcast on Spotify?

  3. Wow. Garyvee you just opened up my brain. I just started my youtube and I have been trying to beat the algorithm. But on my instagram I don't do that and took time to build the brand. Great advice for me to do the same here on youtube. 👏👏👏

  4. Lol at the panther puncher

  5. Brilliant. This video has motivated me to create and document, document, document – for my own future. No more looking back, no more creative anxiety over form and audience, and metrics and Likes. Just document, create, produce. Thanks Gary and Chase.

  6. How do I promote and use the text messages like Gary does? Message me! Socials on my channel videos!

  7. Really good to hear Chase say "Make it till you make it"…. "fake it til you make it" is one of the worst pieces of advise.

  8. So true! As soon as you seek validation, your art is dead! Creativity and trying to impress are not compatible at all. 🙌🏻

  9. Thanks, I really needed to hear this. A lot of photography I follow is because it’s different but yet I find myself chasing trends & likes. I appreciate this

  10. So are the comments the new likes

  11. I dont understand instagram. I cant post my videos onto it. Does anybody know how to do that? Please show me. Thanks for topics. I can relate to that. A new utuber trying my best.

  12. good move If they do so . at least some of the retard cunt would have kill themselves because of this . make this world more peaceful

  13. I'd much rather enjoy the Instagram stories layout
    Where only you could see who views it and that's all there is to it. Likes are a curse

  14. Most people confuse marketing with sales. It took me a while to realize I was. I had to bring in a partner to do the marketing for me to really see the difference between trying to hack marketing and actually selling

  15. REmoving likes will try to "Destroy" Influencers so they don't take all the advertising money 😀 Instead Instagram want this advertising money to go to their pockets through direct advertising 😀

  16. So it don't matter if I put a like or dislike on this video 🙄

  17. Content quality was top. Ruthlessly hanging up the phone in the end not so much. Talking about empathy and stuff… Otherwise very helpful advices through the video.
    That was the sandwich tactic right there.

  18. Love the document and not create analogy. I’m a professional photographer and am always seeing videos to “make your grid/feed” polished, same tones, best work, etc. What are some tips you or Chase (a professional photographer) would have for an IG feed to accomplish this analogy. By the way, f’ing awesome segment by you two!

  19. This guy blows. You're dope tho Gary. Keep that shit up bro.

  20. No way this happens end of Instagram if they do

  21. Instagram limits creativity everyday, Instagram is all ASS and Celebs. Even sports and music barely gets love. Take a way LIKES and create mire CONTENT.

  22. Not to mention how many apps and companies that are out there to help people boost profile ratings with fake likes automated by that company.

  23. Love it! Get rid of likes!!

  24. I’m shook- this is exactly what I needed to watch to get on the right path. “All you have is a compass.” So powerful! I have been ignoring that inner voice. Time to shift gears! Thanks guys! I’m ready to punch panthers in the face too 😂💕❤️

  25. Instagram will FAIL miserably if they remove the likes. In a society based on status, removing likes would be like giving everyone a million dollars. When everyone is Rich no one is rich and human nature needs a dominance hierarchy. They will realize the error of their mistakes if they decide to remove likes probably after it is too late.

  26. Lol the fact that this meaningless shit stresses people out is hilarious to me

  27. I’m curious what women are going to do for validation off beta thirsty men who give them likes? LOL

  28. Who knows when this is coming to America? I’ve been waiting since last winter lol

  29. That’s what got me to create content!!! You saying my grandkids will see this and I thought fuck yes Gary fuck perfection I wanna show my future babes what I was about! Thank you so much please keep encouraging the beast to rise out of us!

  30. You put it out there and people are going to see it, regardless of likes “👍🏻” 👈🏻 😂

  31. People get hung up on their amount of likes and views, become anxious and don't create content as they could. The solution is not to take away the data but for that individual person to redirect their focus on being consistent. The data is necessary and very important. Likes show you how much value your contact has brought to people. Without likes, I may post more because of less anxiety, but it won't be easy to improve my content and bring more value to others. Removing likes might actually be good to get people started, but it is temporary solution to getting people to consistently try to provide value and they could simply not look at their likes instead.

  32. Lets be real though, people need likes… we as a human nature have this huge desire to be liked. If its not on IG then its going to be some where.

  33. “You cannot stand out and fit in at the same time.”

  34. Won’t it just lead to people leaving the platform?

  35. You talk like people are slaves to the like function. If you dont like it , dont care about it i post whatever i like i am no slave to anybody and i am happy about every like i get

  36. Without likes instagram is not instagram. Most people dont give comments but they like fotos, remove that and most people wont get respones at all anymore. I hate when companys fix something that is not broken. I dont care for business likes and people who do it on inst i want to have fun with my pictures, without likes there is less fun

  37. I didn't get it at first when he said "document don't create" it makes so much sense now

  38. Remove likes so more beasts can improve their fake life on instagram. Just leave it there my friends. Creativity will be there if people see the likes, seeing no likes, we have no idea what to improve… if no likes how the fuck people know if the shit is good or bad. Finally remove likes, Instagram will be down… at the same time, watching the next social platform to go push Instagram down.

  39. You need a higher gain preamp to get the most out of the SM 7Bs.
