In a blog post, Instagram announced that over the coming weeks view counts will be added underneath videos where you’d previously see likes.

“Since launching video two years ago and introducing Hyperlapse and Boomerang, you’ve made video storytelling on Instagram take off.

“Whether sitting front row at Fashion Week or spending a day on the beach, nothing brings moments to life like video. Adding view counts is the first of many ways you’ll see video on Instagram get better this year.”
