Instagram Video View Counts

Instagram recently announced that videos posted to the app will soon show a view counter, telling users how many times their videos have been viewed.

Although not a big change, it is an important one, as now you’ll be able to see data such as the number of likes and views. Both are different metrics and it should help someone who has a huge number of followers to decide what a user wants and what’s more popular.

The new change will be rolling out in the coming weeks, and a view counter will replace the tradition Like counter. You’ll still be able to see who liked your video, but the number of views will take center stage.

As you can see in the screenshots above, the Instagram video view counts has replaced the number of likes. To see who has liked your video, you’ll have to tap on the views. This will show you both views and likes.

Instagram also stated that a lot of other improvements to video will be rolled out this year. What do you think of the new Instagram video view counter? Do you prefer it to likes?
