Can you ask people to follow you on Instagram?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

I’d be happy to provide a detailed answer to your question about asking people to follow you on Instagram.

On Instagram, you have the option to request to follow someone’s account if it is set to private. When you request to follow someone, they receive a notification and can choose to either confirm or delete your request.

To ask someone to follow you on Instagram, you can simply send them a follow request. If their account is public, you can follow them directly without having to request access. However, if their account is private, you will need to send a follow request and wait for them to approve it.

To send a follow request, you can visit the person’s Instagram profile and tap the “Follow” button. This will send them a notification indicating that you want to follow their account. The person will then have the option to either confirm your request or delete it.

If the person confirms your follow request, you will be able to see their posts and updates on your Instagram feed. You will also be able to interact with their content by liking, commenting, and sharing it. Additionally, they will be able to see your posts and updates on their feed if you have a public account.

On the other hand, if the person deletes your follow request, you will not be able to see their posts or interact with their content. In this case, you can always reach out to the person and ask them to request to follow you again if you accidentally denied their follow request.

It’s important to note that while you can ask people to follow you on Instagram, it is ultimately up to them whether or not they want to approve your request. It’s always a good idea to respect their decision and not pressure them into following you. Building a genuine and engaged following on Instagram is about creating meaningful connections and sharing valuable content.

Asking people to follow you on Instagram is as simple as sending them a follow request. However, it’s important to remember that the decision to approve or deny your request lies with the individual. Building a strong Instagram following is about fostering genuine connections and sharing valuable content, rather than pressuring others to follow you.
