Instagram is popular because of it’s lovely design, ease of use, enormous amount of active people engaging on the platform, and of course because of alle the nice content. You can follow anyone you like, your friend, your neighbour, Kendal Jenner, Forbes or pretty much anything else, just determined by your interests. Instagram covers every topic and interest possible and you will be able to find anything you like on the platform.
Instagram is also one of the reasons why influencer marketing got so popular in the recent years, and why the industry is growing so fast. Influencer marketing is based on branding and selling through other people, just like a referral from a friend, but from social media instead. Especially Instagram, which also incorporated a feature called “partnership with x”, where a brand can directly link a sponsored or partnership post with an Instagrammer, like shown below.
In this post I’ll cover the top 5 methods on how you can see who had viewed your Instagram profile.
So let’s get started.
Are you aware of the ‘stalkers’ on Instagram?
At this time being you aren’t able to see the exact profiles of the people who have viewed your profile. At the moment you will only be able to see have have viewed your story, as you probably know already.
You probably want to find out who is watching your profile, and wether or not this guy or girl is stalking. We do understand, we all want some privacy right?
You might feel that there is no need to find out who is viewing your account and stalking your every move on Instagram. But, think about for once.
Don’t you really want to know your stalkers who actually admire you?
Who is stalking your profile?
Who views your profile in general and how often?
However there are solutions to this problems, and even though Instagram doesn’t (like other social media sites) official allow the permission to view the exact profile of people who have viewed your Instagram, you can use some 3. party tools to get some more insight.
Easiest way to stalk on Instagram?
When people are stalking on Instagram you actually stalk people very easy, because you won’t even have to visit their account from your own account or phone.
A very popular tool is www.insta-stalker.com where you can simply type in a username to watch their account posts and stories.
Insta-stalker doesn’t require any login or payment to use their service, however you won’t be able to view private accounts, which is why we recommend having a private account.
There are still methods to view who’s watching your Instagram profile and posts
There are different approached to analysing your Instagram account as well as who is viewing, engaging, liking etc. on your profile and posts. For stories you can simple tap at your stories and you will be greeted by some of the basic details about the story, such as how many have viewed it, and who have viewed your story. Example like shown below
These stories give your and your following a “social rank”, which let’s Instagrams algorithm choose who it thinks matters the most to you. As you might have noticed, you tend to see stories of your friends first (at the top of your Instagram feed) and then you will see celebrities and other people, businesses and pages you follow. The reason for this is the more you engage with one person or page on Instagram the higher social rank it gets to your account. If you stop viewing, liking, clicking etc. on their profile their social rank will drop and vice versa. In other words, a “popularity score“.
For this reason if your account ins’t “private” or you just want to get some more insight of your followers besides stories you still have some options.
- You can transform to a business account
- You can use 3. party tools to gain additional insight
How to transform private account in to a business account
Transforming your account in to a business account is fairly simple and easy and doesn’t require any cost or difficult setup. The proces is simple
- Go to your profile and tab the “settings icon”
- Tab on “settings”
- Tab on “Switch to business profile“
- Generally this will also ask you to connect to your business page on Facebook (because normally businesses uses this feature) however you can skip this part and just gain the “business insight” for your profile
- Add details about profile category and contact info
This means you and add business features such as “contact button”, “call” and “e-mail” info to your account as well as the Instagram insight, which lets you get a lot more details about your posts, followers and engagement.
