See Your Friend’s Liked Posts on Instagram

While we have discussed the steps involved to see posts you have liked via your account, some of you might 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 until October 2019.

Although we don’t have a method to check liked posts of others right now, reliable app reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi recently spotted that the company may be working to bring back this feature behind the scenes. We will have to wait and see if it materializes though.

Until then, you will have to manually visit your friend’s followers list and check recent posts from other creator’s to know if your friend has liked any posts recently. This approach may be effective if you want to know whether your friends have liked posts of specific people. Here’s how to do that:

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

2. Scroll through their posts, and you will see “Liked by <friend name>” above the post’s caption if your friend has liked the post. If you have multiple mutual friends with this third person, you could also tap the like counter to view the complete likes list. Needless to say, the person should either have a public profile, or you should follow them for this method to work.
