Here is the sample video! Have a look!


Now you can hide the likes and dislikes button on YouTube but however the main reason behind hiding the likes and dislikes is that I observed people doing so is when their videos receive a lot of negative feedback. I believe the notion is that if the numbers aren't visible, people won't be as likely to dislike the video because so many other people have already done so.

In general, there isn't a very strong reason to hide subscription counts, likes, or dislikes. It might be more practical to conceal comments, but it's entirely up to you. In general, I favour keeping everything public and finding better ways to handle the effects of unpleasant content. Who are you?
