One of my very favorite Facebook executives is famous for saying, “Likes are not a business outcome.” This is absolutely true. But likes are more addictive than oatmeal raisin cookies or soft pretzels or peanut butter toffee ice cream or, well… you get it. Likes are addictive. So, what would happen if Instagram made them go away? Wait. What? Yes, Instagram is experimenting with the idea.
IMHO, this would shift the balance of social media power in a very positive way.
