X formerly known as Twitter, the company that is now owned by Elon Musk is rolling out a feature that lets premium users to hide their likes. This comes after competing social networks Threads and Bluesky recently launched out a feature that enables users to view their own likes on the networks’ profiles.
Paid users of X now have access to a feature under the profile customization menu that enables them to conceal the likes tab.
“Only you will be able to see the Likes tab that is located on your profile. Your Likes timeline will likewise be concealed from X APIs after this change is made. The feature description states that each of your individual Likes will continue to be displayed on posts.
X lets premium users hide likes up until this point, the likes have been visible to the public, and anyone may view the posts that another user has liked by going to their profile. However, Musk has added a new perk to the paid tier that enables users to like postings without having to worry about other people seeing them.
Since the beginning of this month, X has provided its subscribers with the option to conceal their verification checkmark, most likely so that they can avoid being subjected to this meme. Nevertheless, if a user chooses to conceal their likes tab, they will reveal the fact that they have subscribed to the service regardless of whether or not it is hidden.
Users are only able to view the posts that they have liked on Threads by navigating to the “Your Likes” option located within the Settings menu. Although likes are kept private on the Bluesky app and website, the platform has said that likes are open to the public, and third-party applications that use the Bluesky API have the option of displaying a likes tab on a user’s profile.
