Getting likes on social media is a kind of flex but not everyone can pretending to be cool and attract hundreds and thousands of like. Due to this, it somehow can affect the mental peace of some users. To curb this situation, Instagram gave an option where you can hide the number of likes on your post.
Since Threads is an extension of Instagram, Threads also allows you to hide likes counts of your Threads post.
