Seeing someone's Likes on Tumblr is a great way to get to know their tastes and opinions. It can also be a useful tool for marketing and market research. However, it's not always easy to see someone's Likes if they're private.
One of the first things you should know about someone's Likes on Tumblr if they're private is that they will not be displayed publicly, but rather in a widget or sidebar. This is a good thing because it can help protect privacy and prevent others from following them.
To see a user's Likes, click on their username in the dashboard or the search page. It will bring up a Dashboard page showing all their Likes, and it will say the total number of likes on their blog (if they've shared them).
If you click on their profile, you can find more information about them, including their "Archive" or "Likes" count and any comments they've left. You can also ask them questions, send fan mail or see their profile image and other information about their blog.
Another way to see someone's Likes on Tumblr when they're private is to view their Archive. This will give you a full list of their posts, sorted by month, and you can sort them by date, type or other filters in the thumbnails.
To make someone's Archive visible to you, you need to enable the feature in your account settings. Once you do, the Archive will be displayed on your desktop Dashboard as a new page called "My Archives." Select this option and choose which blog you want to make your Primary blog. This will appear at the top of your dashboard when you log in and it will be the first blog to show up on the Tumblr app with your account.
