Instagram is among the most popular social media networking sites of all time. When the platform was launched in 2010, it was an entirely different place than it is today. And we aren’t saying it’s a bad thing; change is the only constant, especially if it’s for the better. For instance, we can say that today, all most users on Instagram are concerned with is more and more followers. It’s a constant race, and no-one wants to be left behind. However, users were most concerned with presenting their thoughts and life happenings to their friends and family back then.
The Explore section people adore today was called Popular, although its function was more or less the same. Of course, Reels weren’t a part of the app back then. That’s probably why it wasn’t as famous as it is today.
Anyhow, the rush for followers is real. People are willing to do almost anything for more followers, including paying people to become their followers or paying a single person to direct followers to their accounts. In fact, some people have been known to create multiple accounts and follow their main profile from all of them.
All this while, the true formula for amassing hundreds of followers was hiding in plain sight. Of course, it isn’t ideal, but then, not much is. Instead of trying to collect as many random people in your followers’ list, you’d actually have to work hard in one particular skill or direction.
Your target audience or those interested in the said skill and direction will gravitate toward your account because that’s just how the Instagram algorithm works.
While this might sound way too complicated in theory, it’s quite common. All the influencers and content creators you see today have followed this roadmap.
For example, let’s talk about Charli D’Amelio. Many think that her success was calculated or that she’s famous for no reason, but that’s simply not true. Instead, she was simply fortunate or smart enough to know exactly what to do at the correct time.
She’s quite gifted in dance and utilized it by dancing to famous songs, combining two things people like: dance and trending music. Then, her target audience- mainly Gen Z- was attracted to her profile automatically, which ultimately made her famous.
So, all you need is a skill you wish to pursue, strong determination, and patience, and you’ll be good to go! In today’s blog, we’ll discuss how you can filter Instagram followers by follower count. Stick with us until this blog’s end to learn all about it!
How to Filter Instagram Followers by Follower Count
Instagram is an influential platform, so if you manage to gain traction here, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to direct a loyal fanbase on any platform. However, you should distinguish between random followers who follow you for their own agenda and those who are there solely for content.
There’s only one small observation that can help you here. Let’s say that you post videos of quick and easy recipes. Do your followers post (or follow other accounts that post) similar content?
If yes, then congratulations; your content is working. However, if your followers’ list consists of only random users, it might be for another reason. It’s best to evaluate your user base before you move on to creating new content.
One thing you might want to do is filter your followers by follower count. However, we’re sorry that it isn’t possible to do so on Instagram. You could go through your followers’ list manually, but that’s about it.
Now, let’s move on to our next topic of the day. As an Instagram content creator, one of the biggest tools you should take full advantage of is the Instagram professional dashboard. It can tell you all you need to know about your profile’s performance among your target audience.
Here’s how to access your Professional Dashboard
Step 1: Launch Instagram on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll land on is the Home feed. At the bottom of that page, you’ll see five icons. Tap on the icon at the bottom right corner, which is a thumbnail of your profile picture.
Step 3: Now, you’ve been brought to Your profile. At the top, under your bio, you’ll see your Professional dashboard, which tells you how many accounts have been reached in the past thirty days. Tap on it for more information.
Now you can see a lot of data about how your account performs and figure out what you should be doing differently.
In the end
As we end this blog, let’s recap all we’ve discussed today.
Instagram is a large social media platform, and there are always new updates based on user requests. There haven’t been many requests for a feature that lets users filter their Instagram followers by follower count because there’s no such feature.
If you desperately need to do so, there’s only one option: go through all profiles that follow you, note down their followers, and arrange it from low to high or vice versa. Still, practically speaking, it isn’t a possible alternative.
