So basically they are planning to display like count for followers but the person who is in charge of the account can see it. Nowadays SNS is the pretty much main thing in our daily life and social media influencer is trending, so we can say Instagram likes are pretty much similar to SNS version of currency.

Influencers / celebrity like Kim Kardashian, gives such a great inspiration to the followers and other regular influencers are sharing daily life to the followers and giving happy hormones.

There are many issues when it comes to SNS, but the sudden change that Instagram made surprised a lot of users not only Influencers but also regular users. Since like count is everything and is indicator of popularity as an influencer, this change was such a big deal to them.
