Kim Kardashian Says This Change to Instagram Could Improve Mental Health

During the conference, she spoke about the proposed feature to hide like and view counts on posts. While followers wouldn’t be able to access the numbers, you’d still be able to see the engagement.

“As far as mental health… I think taking the likes away and taking that aspect away from [Instagram] would be really beneficial for people,” she said.

“I know the Instagram team has been having a bunch of conversations with people to get everyone’s take on that and they’re taking it really seriously, and that makes me happy.”

“I find myself to be extremely mentally strong and I have people who are obsessed with the comments, and I find that to be really unhealthy. I struggle with having to step outside of how I feel and thinking about, ‘What if one of my children was like one of my friends who wasn’t as mentally strong and would really be affected by the comments?’ That would really affect me,” she went on to say.

“It is tricky and when I raise my kids, I think about screen time, phone time, what to post, what not to post. Even posting things in real-time, I learned from a bad experience I had when I was robbed that people knew my every move, what I had, where I was, what I was doing, and that, to me, really changed the things that I post. I still want people to feel like they’re on that journey with me, but I might video something and then post it when I’ve left the location for privacy,” she added of her own Instagram use.
