Does turning off likes makes you less engaged on Facebook: Yes it does By removing likes counts on posts, Facebook and Instagram take away one of the main indicators of engagement. Brands and marketers may lose out because users could be less motivated to like a post just because they feel like people are not following up your engagements and again maybe you don’t put up good contents on your page. So in other ways it’s risky to turn off likes some times especially for content creators.
Alot of Facebook users chooses to switch off their Active Status, because they are keeping it private to message with few friends and family members, because they feel like anytime their Active Status is showing online; it’s trouble for them so they choose to message few persons and leave the App. They choose to appear offline only for certain people that you select.
When you turn off your Active Status, messages will still go to your Chat list for you to read later. If you use the Messenger app, you’ll also receive messages in Messenger. So there’s nothing much to be worried about. Most often people are not always in the mood to exchange messages but they are online at that period of time.
