How to hide likes on Facebook
When you like or react to a post, that information becomes available to the masses. Anyone who can see that post can see who responds to it and how many reactions it has accumulated. If you are the person who owns the post — meaning it came from your account — you can choose whether or not to display that information. Let’s review how to hide likes on Facebook.

Who can see my likes on Facebook?
In terms of who can see your posts, that is entirely up to your privacy settings. By default, only people who are your friends and followers can see the content you post to your profile — as well as the like and reaction count.
When you like a page or post on Facebook, that reaction will be recorded on that post. Everyone who can see that post can see that you liked it.
