Reports have it that Instagram and Facebook have stopped displaying likes to curb the inferiority complexes.
This doesn’t apply to accounts with low views but those with higher views, but what if you can’t find the like counts on your personal Facebook account with low Liles?
This is an indication there’s something that needs to be properly configured on your Facebook account immediately.
In this article, I’ll provide reasons why your Facebook isn’t showing likes and what to do for each scenario.
Why is Facebook not showing likes?
If your Facebook posts are not showing likes, it can be frustrating and leave you wondering what the problem is.
There are a few common reasons why your Facebook likes may not be showing up:
1. Your Facebook Privacy Settings
The first reason why your Facebook likes are not showing up is that your privacy settings are set to only allow certain people to see your posts.
If you have your privacy settings set to “friends” or a specific list of people, it’s possible that some of your friends or followers are not able to see your posts.
To check your privacy settings,
- Click on the down arrow in the top right corner of your Facebook page,
- Then under the “settings and Privacy” tab, click on settings
- Scroll down and click on Privacy
- From there, you can adjust your privacy settings to allow more people to see your posts.
2. Clear Facebook Cache
A corrupt cache could also result in your Facebook feed not displaying properly and this cause likes to disappear.
This often resolves the issue in most cases, here’s how to go about it.
- Open your settings App > Apps and click on Facebook
- Under storage, tap on “Clear Cache” and that’s it.
Before doing this, you can try closing and reopening the app to see if the problem gets fixed.
3. Access Facebook via other sources
If you’ve been using the Facebook or Facebook lite app then you should consider switching to the web view.
4. App Permissions
Some Facebook users give websites or App permissions to their website for the sake of auto likes, comments, and co.
These services might interfere with the functionality of your Facebook account and cause glitches.
If you think this might be the case, you can try revoking the app’s permissions or uninstalling the app altogether to see if it resolves the issue.
5. Check your internet connection
If you have a weak or unstable internet connection, it could cause issues such as your likes not showing up.
In this case, you may need to troubleshoot your internet connection or try accessing Facebook from a different device or location to see if the issue persists.
In conclusion, there are a few potential reasons why your Facebook likes may not be showing up.
If you’re experiencing this issue, it’s worth trying to identify the cause and take steps to resolve it.
