Ever since the TikTok ban in India, Instagram Reels and Facebook’s short-form video content have become immensely popular. Reels allow users to watch, share, like, and comment on captivating videos. Even if you’re not a creator or have a business account, you can still check the basic statistics of your reels. While you can’t see who viewed your reels on Instagram or Facebook, you can find out who liked them. This article will guide you through the process of discovering who liked your reels on both platforms.
How to See Who Liked Your Reels on Instagram
Launch the Instagram app and navigate to your profile tab. Tap on the ‘Reels’ tab to view your reels.
Scroll through your reels and select the reel for which you want to see the ‘Liked by’ list.
Below the Like button (heart icon), you’ll find the numeric count. Tap on it.
Scroll through the ‘Liked by’ section to find the list of people who have liked your reel. You can even follow them or visit their profiles.
TIP: You can also use this method to check who liked someone else’s reel.
Keep in mind that Instagram reels only display up to 100 likes, regardless of the actual like count.
How to See Who Liked Your Reels on Facebook
Open the Facebook app and go to the Menu tab. Tap on the “Reels” shortcut.
Click on your profile picture located in the top-right corner.
Tap the “Reels” tab to view all the reels you’ve posted on Facebook. Select a reel to view it.
To see who liked your reel on Facebook, click on the number below the Like button (thumbs up icon).
The “Likes” section will display a clear list of people who have liked your reel. You can view their profiles, send messages (if they are friends), or add them as friends.
Similarly, you can view the list of likes on other people’s Facebook reels.
NOTE: If a reel originally shared on Instagram is recommended on Facebook, it will include likes and plays from Instagram as well. This information is mentioned at the top and shows the number of likes specifically from Instagram.
