Nicki Minaj has vowed to quit Instagram after the social media platform revealed that they are testing a feature in the United States that will hide likes from showing on specific accounts.
"I’m not posting on IG after this week cuz they removing the likes," the newly married star tweeted. "Hmmmm what should I get into now? Think of all the time I’ll have with my new life."
Some influencers has expressed their concerns over the new feature.
Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri told Wired’s Arielle Pardes and actress Tracee Ellis Ross that the new feature is "about young people."
"The idea is to try and depressurize Instagram. Make it less of a competition. Give people more space to focus on connecting with people that they love, things that inspire them," he said. "But it’s really focused on young people. We have to see how it affects how people feel about the platform, how they use the platform, how it affects creator ecosystem, but I’ve been spending a lot of time on this personally."
