Instagram Removing Followers

Instagram is always testing new features...

and cleaning up who follows and who you follow, seems to be a priority

Now THE GOOD STUFF

When you unfollow someone, Instagram will prompt you with one of two questions:

REVIEW SIMILAR ACCOUNTS

Navigate to someone you're following and tap unfollow

Instagram will notify you to review similar accounts

REMOVE FOLLOWER FROM THEIR PROFILE

Navigate to someone you're following and tap unfollow.

Instagram will ask you if you also want to remove that person as a follower.

REMOVE FOLLOWER FROM YOUR PROFILE

Navigate to your profile and tap on your followers.

Instagram will give you two options here: a follow button next to the username

Or a Remove button all the way to the right.

How THIS AFFECTS YOU

  • You could be removed from following people you typically follow and never know it.
  • Instagram doesn't tell the other person that you've unfollowed or removed them as a follower.
  • If you're not interacting with your new followers and spending time building connections, you could get axed off other peoples lists.
  • This is a direct attempt to crush the follow for follow industry that ran rampant as a 'Growth Hack' over the last few years.
  • Cleaning up ghost followers is a good way to improve your engagement rating.
