Creators are having trouble seeing the number of views on their posts owing to the broken stats functionality. The platform has not been updating or registering stats for quite some days now.

For some, it is also not displaying reviews on their stories unless they use their phones. The glitch makes it appear as though creators are not receiving any visitors to their posts or stories.

Although it’s been said that the issue might get fixed in the 2023 Match update, it is nonetheless very frustrating for the affected users.
