How to See Someone’s Recent Followers on Instagram

If you have been using Instagram for a while now, you must have noticed that the app displayed the user’s followers list in chronological order, allowing you to know who recently followed someone on Instagram i.e. the newest followers to the oldest ones. Those who followed your account recently were displayed on the top of the list while the rest of the accounts are ranked lower – depending on how long they have been following you.

However, the platform has made a few changes to its follower’s display settings. As of June 2021, the list is not displayed in chronological order.

Now, there is a good chance the followers’ list displayed on your Instagram account is totally different from the one shown in another Instagram account. If you check the same list on another phone, chances are the order in which the followers are mentioned will be completely different. That’s the default setting of Instagram.

The question is “how can you view Instagram followers in a chronological order”? how do you know who followed the user recently?

It was definitely possible earlier when the new update wasn’t introduced, but you can still track the list in your desired order following the below-listed techniques.

By the end of this post, you will know who are the recent followers of your target Instagram account and what you can do to find the list easily. We have discussed nearly every method you may need to keep tabs on the Instagram user.

Sound’s good? Let’s get started.

How to See Someone’s Recent Followers on Instagram

To see someone’s recent followers on Instagram, go to his or her Instagram page. Tap on their follower’s list and you will get the list displayed in chronological order, i.e. the newest followers listed on the top. However, sometimes recent followers are often placed at the end of the list, so double-check.

If this method does not work then you can also try to check the recent followers from the browser.

So, we tried this one and it also worked wonders. If you check someone’s follower’s list on the Instagram app, chances are you will get the default list and not the one in chronological order. However, many people have tried using the browser version just to get the follower list in their selected pattern and it worked.

It seems like the Instagram website still displays the follower list in proper order. Then again, this method may or may not work. But, it is worth a try.

Here’s how you can view the target’s follower list on Instagram through the browser.

  • Open Instagram on your browser.
  • Type someone’s username in the search bar.
  • Select the account and open their profile.
  • Click on the “Followers” next to the “Following” tab.
  • It will display recent followers on the top.
