We socially network addicted users feel a special kind of connection to people we follow and this is particularly true when the followership is mutual. Logical, then, to worry about people who unfollowed you and now it’s easy to find out when that’s happening with the help of some thisd-party apps.
When you lose followers on Instagram, the app doesn’t tell you who it was or when it happened, right? Luckily, you have at least a few good third-party applications to find it out.
The most basic way to check to see who unfollowed you on Instagram is to do it manually by staying on top of your exact follower count and then investigate the Following lists of other users to verify whether or not they’re still following you.
This is obviously very time consuming and impractical work – especially when you have a lot of followers that fluctuates regularly.
If you notice your follower count go down and are left wondering who decided to unfollow you for whatever reason, there are ways you can track it – right down to the exact users who decided to leave. If you can find out who unfollowed you, you can try to interact with them a little and potentially win them back again as your followers list.
Unfortunately, you can’t do this with the Instagram app alone. Here are three different third-party apps that connects to your Instagram account and are able to track and tell you exactly who hit the unfollow button.
1) Unfollowers for Instagram
Several sites provide this info for various social networks, but Unfollowers for Instagram comes out near the top in terms of providing this information that you’d normally have to manually check by going into the individual profiles of people you follow.
The thing is that this can become a headache for people obsessed with knowing every detail of this info. Hence, this app is essential if you want to get this info in a fast and simple way.
What does it promises?
If you want to find out all the details about your followers (and non-followers) over Instagram, this is the best possible option. However, do accept a small piece of advice; best not to get too obsessed with this info, as it is not the healthiest thing in the world.
The way unfollowers for Instagram works could not be simpler: after adding your Instagram username, six columns should appear with all the info about your account status. Those six sections include: people who don’t follow you, people who’ve recently stopped following you, mutual followers, people who do follow you but you don’t follow back, ghost followers (people who haven’t left a comment or liked your last 10 posts), and people you follow.
The navigation is quite functional as you get around by swiping sideways and tap to follow or unfollow anybody. You need to have the Instagram app installed for that feature to work properly.
The simplest tool to use to see who unfollowed you on Instagram is one that was created for just that, and that alone. It’s called Unfollowgram. All you have to do is allow it to connect to your Instagram to instantly get a glimpse of who unfollowed you.
When you have your Instagram account connected, Unfollowgram will ask you for your email address and then it will take you to your own dashboard with instructions on how it works. It will start tracking anyone who unfollows you from that point onward, and all you have to do is sign in or click the Check button in the top right corner to get your most up-to-date statticks.
Menu and options
Along the top that you can look at, if you want to get specific about a mutual following. So, in addition to seeing who unfollowed you, you can look at who doesn’t follow you back, and who you don’t follow back.
Unfollowgram is not an app and can only be accessed on the regular web, but it’s been optimize for mobile web browsing so you don’t have to always jump on a laptop or computer just to check out who unfollowed you.
InstaFollow is an iOS app that you can download from App Store to your device and connect to your Instagram account. It’s primarily used to track follower stats and insights for users, media, and engagement.
When you use InstaFollow to find new people to follow and have others follow you, such as through S4S, it will show you a summary of all your follower stats on the main tab, including new followers, lost followers and followers who don’t follow you back also followers you don’t follow back and followers who blocked you.
You can tap the Have Unfollowed Me option to see a detailed list of Instagram usernames and even a follow button for each user in case you want to follow them to try and see if that will encourage them to follow you again.
Statusbrew is a premium social media optimization tool that you can use for free with Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other social networks. All you have to do is sign up for a free account to check it out and give the tool permission to connect to your Instagram account so you can see which users you lost as followers.
Once you’ve signed up and connected your account, you’ll be shown your dashboard. Click Audience, which is located on the box with your Instagram handle and profile photo. On the next tab, you’ll see a sidebar on the left. Click New Unfollowers. You will see who unfollowed you.
You’ll probably notice that nothing will be shown to you if you’re asked to upgrade to premium. Your free account only includes basic social media optimization features and, unfortunately, seeing who unfollowed you on Instagram is not one of them.
If you do decide to upgrade, you’ll quickly learn that one of the most convenient things about this tool is that it allows you to subscribe to get updates by email instantly whenever somebody unfollows you – but only if you’re willing to pay for a premium subscription.
You can set this up by accessing your settings from the left menu, clicking on Preferences, navigating to the subscriptions tab and then choosing the monthly plan you want.
What to Do When You See Who Unfollowed You
Once you’ve used any of the above services to see who has unfollowed you on Instagram, it’s then up to you to decide whether you should try and get those followers back, or forgive and forget them. If you choose to try to re-engage them, you’ll have to put a bit of time and energy into liking their posts, commenting on them and possibly even following them.
I hope these apps will help you. Feel free to write you opinion or feedback using comment box.
