Hide Like (Reaction) Counts from the Facebook Mobile App

If you’re on an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, use the Facebook mobile app to hide (or show) like counts. Open the app on your phone and log in to your account if you aren’t already.

In the Facebook app, open the “Menu” screen. To do this, on an iPhone or iPad, tap the three horizontal lines at the bottom of the app. On an Android phone, tap the three horizontal lines at the top-right corner of the app.

Open the "Menu" in the Facebook app.

On the “Menu” page that opens, scroll all the way down and tap “Settings & Privacy.”

Select "Settings & Privacy" in the "Menu" of the Facebook app.

From the expanded “Settings & Privacy” menu, select “Settings.”

Select "Settings" from the "Settings & Privacy" menu in the Facebook app.

On the “Settings” screen, scroll down to the “News Feed Settings” section. Here, tap “Reaction Preferences.”

Tap "Reaction Preferences" in the "Settings" menu of the Facebook app.

Facebook will open the “Reaction Preferences” page. On this page, to hide like counts for posts from other users, enable the “On Posts from Others” option. To hide like counts from your own posts, toggle on the “On Your Posts” option.

Hide like counts using the Facebook app.

And like counts are now disabled in your Facebook account.

To get those counts back in the future, access the same “Reaction Preferences” page in the Facebook app. Then turn off both “On Posts from Others” and “On Your Posts” options.

And that’s all there is to it. It makes sense to hide like (reaction) counts if you don’t find them useful and/or you don’t rely on them to judge any posts.
