It’s a social media tale as old as time; and so is the big search term of unfollow Instagram. You get a notification that you have a new follower on Instagram. Immediately you get a rush of excitement and flattery. In an effort to reciprocate the kindness, you follow the account back. They like a few of your posts and you feel like this might be the beginning of a mutually-beneficial virtual relationship. However, weeks pass by and you realize that you haven’t seen any engagement coming from that account.
Sure, you continue to show them the e-love, but you suddenly realize they have grown silent.
Have you done something wrong?
Do they no longer “like” your posts?
OR have they committed the ultimate social media form of rejection – DID THEY UNFOLLOW YOU?
In an attempt to keep the unfollow Instagram drama off of their platform, Instagram made it almost impossible to tell if someone has stopped following you within their native app. Just kidding, that probably wasn’t their motivation, but either way, this function or LACK of function has made it pretty difficult to determine if you are enjoying a two-way relationship or not. But as with many “problems” in life, the internet was quick to help us solve this by creating an APP FOR THAT!
You’re lucky: there’s an app for that
Yes, there’s an app to track that: unfollow Instagram.
If you found this article, then most likely you have already spent some time drowning in the App Store with endless amounts of random apps that promise to show you who has unfollowed your Instagram account. Most of them work, some of them don’t!
So, to dig through the clutter, here is a short list of which apps you should try to find how who unfollowed you on Instagram! This is not a list of the ALL of the options, but we can vouch that these apps work.
