Instagram is a large social media platform and has been so ever since it was launched. Its popularity has quadrupled in the past few years and will only increase in the coming future. Now, as someone who doesn’t have a lot of knowledge about how social media and human psychology work, you might be wondering why this happened. And while more than a few factors go into the launch, maintenance, and upgradation of a social media platform, there are a few key pointers. We’ve tried to summarize them into easily understandable information below, so read on to learn about it.
Firstly, let’s talk about uniqueness. A platform like Instagram serves multiple purposes, from socialization to business, entertainment, studies, and surveys: you can do it all here. There’s only one other platform besides Instagram to offer all this: Facebook, and we all know how that works.
So, there’s no other platform where you can socialize with your friends, post pictures, glamorize your life, and simultaneously advertise your service/product/skill. And that’s not all.
Instagram is only going uphill from where it is today, so if you gain traction there right now, who’s to say how far you can go in the following years? As a social media platform, Instagram has achieved all the success and aiming for more.
One reason behind this is the constant upgradation. If you’ve been using Instagram for a while now, you must know how many weekly updates you need to download. It’s almost annoying, or it would be if they didn’t include new and exciting features for all of us to try.
Features like reels, story highlights, remixing, and other aesthetic tweaks make all of our days a little bit better. Admittedly, not all updates launched by Instagram have been welcomed by users with open hands. However, every time you take a risk, you have to be prepared for the worst-case scenarios, and Instagram understands that.
Another reason why Gen Z is particularly fond of Instagram is its interactivity and constant support. Unlike many platforms, Instagram isn’t just a place; it’s a team of people working hard to make our social media experience enjoyable, and they show it, too.
Instagram’s official Instagram page has posted in support of the Black Lives Movement, the LGBTQ community, content creators, and many more such social causes. Doesn’t that sound so encouraging?
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss how you can see your most active followers. Stick with us until this blog’s end to learn all about it!
How to See Your Most Active Followers on Instagram
Instagram is a large social media platform and is no less than a goldmine of opportunities for aspiring content creators/social media influencers. If you count yourself to be one, stay with us till the end because we’ve got a lot of juicy information for you!
However, before that, we’ll discuss your initial question: how can you see your most active followers on Instagram? Strictly speaking, no specific feature or option on Instagram can show you your most active followers.
Still, we’ll do our best to let you know which users interact most with your Instagram account.
Check out your story views
One of the best ways to know which followers of yours are most active on Instagram is to check out your story views. Earlier, Instagram used to arrange story views depending upon when the users saw it. Those who saw your story when it was posted were at the bottom, while the latest viewers were at the top.
The previous order often made it difficult for people to look for the people they wanted to see. It was particularly difficult for those with many followers: they’d have to search for a long time before finding their friend. However, recently, Instagram changed that feature to make it easier for users.
Instagram understood this issue and released an update with an improved version of the feature. Now, only the first ten viewers of your stories will be arranged chronologically.
When the eleventh viewer views your story, the list will be arranged with the users who interact most with you at the top. The users who interact with the least will appear as the list goes on. And sometimes, if users like your story, they’ll be placed above the people you interact with.
So, to find your most interactive followers, upload a story. Then, check out your viewers’ list the next day and note down those at the top. These are your followers who genuinely like seeing your content the most.
Do this consistently, and you’ll soon start seeing familiar faces at the top of your viewers’ list.
