While a majority of the users of Instagram, the world’s most popular photo-sharing application use Instagram to see photos shared by celebrities, photographers, etc, there are a lot of users who use Instagram only to get fans/followers and reach more people. These users keep on eye on their follower’s count.
Although the photo-sharing app displays the number of likes your post has received and the number of people that follow you, there are some users who would like to get more information on their profile.
The following Android and IOS applications are a boon for people who want to get more Instagram followers or would like to see the interesting information of their profile that Instagram won’t show:
Insights for Instagram
Insights for Instagram is an application that displays several details of your Instagram profile. It lets you see the stories shared by friends anonymously and re-share their posts. If you have a long list of followers, IFI shows the profiles of your followers automatically when you scroll down.
While Instagram displays a list of your followers only, IFI makes you aware of:
- The users who have followed you back when you followed them.
- The users that you’re not following but are following you, etc.
IFI helps users in getting new followers by suggesting hashtags that are relevant to the post the user is composing.
FollowMeter is one of the most popular Instagram insights or analytics apps on iTunes and Play Store. It makes you aware of the users that have unfollowed your profile or have blocked it. It compiles a list of users that have liked your post or commented on it and displays them in descending order of the likes/comments count. FollowMeter has a special feature called “Discover” with which users can get more followers.
StatsBooster is an application that you can use to increase your Instagram followers. When you start it, SB asks you to enter the Instagram profile name for which you’d like to get more followers. When you enter the name and tap the next button, SB will display the number of followers your profile has and a “continue” button. If you tap this button, StatsBooster will display a graph and a button. When you tap the button, SB will ask you to “flip the cards” displayed on the screen. The application will calculate the sum of the numbers the cards reveal after you flip them and will share your profile with the same number of users. StatsBooster doesn’t require account registration. It fetches your Instagram data only.
Follower Analyzer for Instagram
Follower Analyzer displays important statistics of the posts you’ve have shared with your followers. It makes you aware of the users that have never liked or shared your post. It displays a list of your most watched videos and users that have tagged your IG username to a post. Follower Analyzer also displays a list of users and the number of times they’ve liked your post or have commented on it.
Followers & Likes Tracker for Instagram
FLT lets you compare the likes of posts you’ve shared with that of your followers. It also allows users to watch stories shared by users anonymously. FLT makes you aware of the people that have followed/unfollowed your account recently.
FLT is one of the few applications that can detect fake followers of an Instagram profile and list them. You can also find out the users that have unfollowed your account and blocked your profile or have temporarily/permanently closed their account with this application.
Followers & Unfollowers
F&U is a great application to manage followers on Instagram. It supports multiple Instagram accounts and has the option to unfollow up to 50 users at a time. F&U allows its users to add a follower to the “Favorites List”. To add a profile to this list, you should long press on it. F&U has filters that will let you find profile followers meeting certain criteria.
Note: Most of the applications ask users to log in to their Instagram account. Why is this so? Well, the apps get your account data from the Instagram user database with the help of an API. If you don’t log in, you won’t be able to use the tools I’ve shared above.
