Instagram is a large social media platform with users from all around the world. Almost every teenager you’ll meet has an Instagram profile, even if they aren’t regular users. Why do you think people have difficulty quitting social media platforms? We aren’t talking about students who uninstall social media apps before their exams; it’s quite understandable why they face that problem. No, we’re talking about young adults who, at this point, don’t wish to use social media but still don’t seem to be able to quit.
To start, most of us are under the impression that social media is a boon. While it is partly true, it’s not the whole truth. Social media is indeed a powerful tool when used in the correct way. However, most of the time, we use social media differently than it was intended.
How horrified would Einstein be if he knew kids today have access to all the information in the world and they use it to dance in short, fifteen-seconds bursts? We know those kids are earning good money, but how far can it be used to justify mindless time waste? At the end of the day, would it matter if you didn’t see three TikToks? No, it wouldn’t.
So, it’s obvious that social media today is essentially a cesspool of generally trashy entertainment for people who are too entertained for their own good. However, it does manage to somehow fulfill one of its core purposes: allowing users to connect with their friends and family online.
So, while only some people want to spend hours scrolling through reels, they still cannot uninstall the Instagram app because they need it to speak to their friends. And yet, when they wake up the next morning, they cannot help but go to the Instagram Explore section and just see a couple of reels to kick start the day.
It’s also not true that they have no choice in the matter. They could go on a social media detox after informing their friends, or simpler yet, just set an app timer. But unfortunately, addiction to social media is too difficult to overcome for most people.
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about how you can find common followers of two separate Instagram accounts. Stick with us till the end of this blog to learn all about it!
How to Find Common Followers of Two Separate Instagram Accounts
Instagram is a large social platform, so it isn’t uncommon to find many mutual followers with your friends. However, have you ever wondered about the number of mutual followers between two of your friends’ Instagram accounts?
Well, if you have, don’t worry; you’re not the only one. Seeing people have more than twenty or thirty mutual friends is exciting. Imagine how close you need to be to a person for that to happen!
So, while we’d love to help you with this, we’re sorry that there’s no definitive option or feature to help you with this. That being said, there are a few ways to determine what you wish to know.
Method 1: Check it from their smartphone
This is the easiest method to find out what you wish to know. Half your work is already done if the owner of one of the two accounts is a close friend. You only need to borrow their phone for a minute and launch Instagram.
Check out how many common followers they have with the other person, and you’re great to go!
Method 2: Find out the common followers manually
This process might be lengthy, but we’re sorry that there isn’t much you can do besides this. Find out which one of these people has the lesser followers.
Then, type out all their followers in a list. Now, all you need to do is place a tick next to the mutual followers.
How to find out mutual followers on Instagram
Now that that’s covered, let’s talk about how you can find mutual followers between you and another user. Don’t worry; there is a feature on Instagram that’ll help you out with that in no time!
Here’s how to see mutual followers on Instagram
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 screen. At the bottom of that page, you’ll see five icons. Tap on the icon next to the Home icon, which is a magnifying glass icon.
Step 3: At the top of the Explore page, you’ll see a search bar. Tap on it and type in the username of the person you wish to see your mutual followers with.
Step 4: From the search results, search and tap on their profile.
Step 5: On their profile, under their bio, you’ll see the words Followed by [username] and x more. Tap on that.
There you go! Instagram has now directed to a list of all the mutual followers between the two of you.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s dive into our last topic for today: how you can deactivate your Instagram account. We know you think that you don’t need this, but there’s a pretty good chance you do.
Most of the mental problems that you’re facing, like depression, anxiety, stress, demotivation, and shyness: most of them are a by-product of excessive social media consumption.

Here’s how to deactivate your Instagram account
Step 1: Launch google on your smartphone and log in to your Instagram account in the browser.
Step 2: The first page you’ll see is your Home feed. At the bottom of the screen, locate five options. Tap on your profile picture icon at the screen’s bottom right corner. It’ll take you to Your profile.

In the end
As we end this blog, let’s recap all we’ve discussed today.
Instagram is a large social media platform, and it’s common to wonder how many mutual followers two of your friends have. However, there’s no option or feature on Instagram to help you with that.
You can either check the number from their smartphones or list it manually. We suggest going with the first one since the second process is way too long, and it isn’t worth going through all that trouble.
Next, we also talked about how you can check out mutual followers with another user on Instagram and how you can deactivate your Instagram account.
