Reason Behind Hidden Following Count on Threads: In response to inquiries regarding the absence of the following count, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri explained, “The idea was to make the number of people you followed less prominent to reduce pressure. Some users hesitate to follow more people on Instagram due to concerns about their follower-to-following ratio. By minimizing the visibility of the count, we wanted to encourage users to follow others without excessive worry.”
