Can you see when someone unfollows you on Instagram?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

You can definitely see when someone unfollows you on Instagram. Instagram provides a simple way to check this by going to the person’s profile and looking at the list of accounts they are following. Here’s how you can do it:

1. Open the Instagram app and go to the profile of the person you suspect may have unfollowed you.

2. Look for the box that says “Following” near the top of their profile, right below their bio and above their posts.

3. Tap on the “Following” box. This will take you to a new page that shows a list of all the accounts they are following.

4. Scroll through the list to see if your account is still there. If you find your account, it means they are still following you. However, if your account is not on the list, it’s a clear indication that they have unfollowed you.

It’s important to note that sometimes Instagram may experience delays in updating the follower count or the list of accounts someone is following. So, if you’ve recently been unfollowed, it’s possible that the change may not be reflected in real-time. However, if you know for sure that they were following you, but you’re not on their list of followers, you can safely assume that you’ve been unfollowed.

While it can be disappointing to discover that someone has unfollowed you on Instagram, it’s important not to take it personally. People unfollow for various reasons, and it doesn’t necessarily reflect on you or your content. It’s best to focus on engaging with your genuine followers and creating meaningful connections rather than worrying about those who choose to unfollow you.

Instagram provides a straightforward way to determine if someone has unfollowed you. By checking the list of accounts a person is following, you can easily see if your account is still included. Remember to not take it personally and continue creating engaging content for your followers.
