See your friend’s liked posts on Instagram

Although we have discussed the steps to see the posts you have liked through your account, some of you may be wondering if there is also an option to see what all your friends have liked on Instagram. In fact, Instagram had a “Following” tab that listed all liked posts up to October 2019.

While we don’t have a method to check others’ likes at this time, the app’s reliable reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi recently noticed that the company may be working to bring this feature back behind the scenes. We will, however, have to wait and see if that materializes.

Until then, you’ll have to manually visit your friend’s follower list and check recent posts from other creators to find out if your friend has liked any posts recently. This approach can be effective if you want to know if your friends have liked posts from specific people. Here’s how:

1. Open your friend’s Instagram profile and tap on the “Next” section. From there, open the profile of the person whose likes you want to check.
