How to Know who Unfollowed You on Instagram

As with any social media account, the purpose of having a social media presence is to connect and follow other people. What first started as a way to communicate with friends and family; has now become a global platform to reach millions of people from different places all over the world. On Instagram you can follow people that share your similar interests, people that live in your same city, people that use it to sell products that you may be interested in, and even to follow famous celebrities. As easy as it is to follow people, it is also fairly easy to unfollow someone.

In this OneHowTo article we share two methods to help you know who unfollowed you on Instagram.

Using the Instagram app

The Instagram app won’t send you a notification when someone has unfollowed your account. This means that if you want to track how many people are no more following your account you have to do it manually. If you don’t have many followers or are just starting out you might have a good idea of the people that are following you. Often, people will follow you if you follow them back.

Therefore if you click on the link that takes you to the people you are following, you can quickly check if they are following you back. On their profile click on the link to know the people they are following. If you don’t see your name there it means they have stopped following you or they never followed you from the beginning. You can also click on the heart button tab to see any recent new followers.

Using a third party app

Since Instagram doesn't track unfollowers, this has created a big market for apps that will connect to your Instagram account and track all activity. Some of the best well-known apps for this purpose are Friend or Follow, Unfollowgram and Followers for Instagram.

For instance, let’s take Followers for Instagram. After you download this app from the store, it will ask you to sign in to your Instagram account through this app.

From this moment on, the app will start tracking the number of new followers, unfollowers, people that are not following you back, people that you don’t follow back and people that have blocked you. It will also generate statistical data so you can track trends and activity against any new movements you have made on your account.

This app will not tell you who unfollowed you previously from using Followers for Instagram. In that case, you might have to use your memory.

Other apps such as Statusbrew offer a complete social media optimatization option. If you use several social media apps or have a business dependent on Instagram, you might want to use Statusbrew. Aside from telling you who unfollowed you it can also help you to discover new audiences that can boost your follower engagement and growth. The key in reducing the number of followers may be in finding the right followers.
