L4L Meaning on Instagram

As one of the most popular hashtags on Instagram, L4L has been tagged on over 80 million photos!

The L4L meaning is “like-for-like”. L4L is an acronym used all the time on sin social media, but is currently used the most on Instagram, a social media app where users can like photos, comment on photos, and follow different users. Users will ask other users “L4L?” with the hope that they will agree and they can like each other’s photos. While the reason that people ask or offer to “like-for-like” can always be different, it’s usually because a user wants to have a lot of likes on their photos, possibly showing that they’re more popular than they actually are. Since you can only see what users a photo liked right after they liked them (and you can’t see more than 4 photos), it’s easy for Instagram users to like a ton of photos and have their photos liked in return so that others will see a lot of likes on that user’s photos.




Example 1.) “L4L anyone?”.
Example 2.) “Hey I just liked 10 of your photos! Like 10 of mine back! #L4L” User 2: “No.”.
