A person’s social media activity tells a lot about them – their interests, their friends, their dating life, you name it. It’s no surprise, then, that so many people turn to social media to get more insight into their significant others, friends, family members, and anyone else they’re trying to know a bit better.
Instagram, however, makes that difficult because they show very little information about other users’ activity, even users you’re following. What information are they missing and where can you find it?
What Activity Does Instagram Show You for Other Users?
In past years, Instagram had a “Following” tab on your “Activity” screen where it showed you the activity of those you were following, but it axed this tab in 2019. Since then, there are only small pieces of information readily available about your friends.
Who They’re Following
On the person’s profile, click on “following” at the top, where the profile shows the number of users this person is following. This brings you to the list of people they follow. Keep in mind that this page won’t show you when they started following these users, it just lists the users themselves.
Who Follows Them
Right next to that “following” number on the person’s profile, you’ll see “followers,” listing the number of followers they have. If you click it, you’ll go to a page that lists everyone who’s following them. As with the accounts they’re following, though, you can only see a broad list, not the dates when the users started following them.
The posts that a user publishes are easy to find on Instagram: simply go to their profile and scroll down. You can see who liked their posts, but you can’t see any of their activity on posts that other users have published.
Activity You Can’t See on Instagram
You might be able to see a user’s posts, their followers, and who they’re following, but that’s all Instagram shows and it’s quite limiting. You can’t see who the person has been interacting with, what posts they’ve liked, what type of trends they follow, or anything else that could give you valuable insight.
