Preliminary information

Before explaining to you how to see likes on a friend's Instagram, I must provide you with some useful preliminary information in this regard.

First, if you are wondering how to see all likes on a friend's Instagram, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but there is no longer a function to do this. In the past there was a section of Instagram that allowed you to see, in real time, the "likes" posted on the posts of others by the people followed.



Unfortunately, it was later removed. At the present time, therefore, this functionality is no longer available and it is no longer possible to obtain this information.

To date, you can only see the "likes" relating to the individual post displayed in the Feed. Also, you need to know that through the Instagram for Android and iOS it is not possible to see the number some "likes", but only the names of those who have put the like.

Da computerInstead, as I will explain in this guide of mine, it is possible to know the exact number of "likes" that a particular post has received, as well as having information on the names of people who have appreciated it.

How to see your friend's likes on Instagram

In the new screen that is shown to you at this point, locate the item Like a and presses on it, in order to see the list of all the names of users who have added a like to the photo or video of the selected person.

From PC

As anticipated, you can view the "likes" on Instagram received from friends or added to the posts of others by the latter also by acting from a computer, via the Instagram website or using its application for Windows 10. Furthermore, by acting from these platforms, it is also possible to know the number likes that other users have received.
