Disappearing Instagram Follower Activity – Users Cannot See What Followers Like

If you want Instagram to bring back Follower Activity sign the petition here.

On Thursday, September 5th, 2019, Instagram greatly changed the Follow Activity screen on the app. Users can no longer see what their followers are liking or who they have recently followed. In fact, there are hundreds of negative reviews on the app story asking Instagram to bring back follower activity. This comes on the heels of Instagram removing Likes in some regions as well.

As time goes on, Instagram is digging their own grave by taking away engagement metrics for users. If they take away like counts and follower activity, users are not going to use the app nearly as much.

Here are some complaints from the App Store reviews:

Fix Following activity – I like to see what my followers like and stuff like that plz put back the following activity

Disappearing Follow activity – Apparently I’m part of the missing follow activity. I like to see what my friends like because I might like it as well due to similar taste. Not sure if this is a bug or a test rollout but I’m not happy about it.

Trash – Stop changing the app What’s going on with the follower activity now??????

Are you seeing the follower activity disappearance on your Instagram app? When did you first see it?

i’m a business and it’s extremely important to see my follower’s activity because it greatly helps us stay ahead with trends and knowing how to keep our audience

Please keep it where you can’t see what I like. People don’t need to know that’s just weird. Instagram finally got it right

I think it’s stupid and should be brought back.. I literally used it all the time to gain new followers and follow things I was interested in. I moved away from my home town and I am able to reconnect with old friends and family by using this feature. It also helped me keep track of my child and what she was viewing on social media. I think it was a good thing to have!

I think it was interesting to watch followers activity as well. It’s more vibrant and social activity sounds more alive!
From time to time I check on my follower’s activity and the posts they liked.
Not to mention that stalking on one’s ex activity could be somehow relieving 😉
We hope you bring it back soon.
Thank you.

The only people that want to see what others like are stalkers. I personally enjoy being able to like random posts on IG without EVERYONE knowing that I liked it.

I agree so much to the instagram. Well done. I id not like my follewers to see what i like. Or at most it can be activate o deactivate in configuration. But altogether i so much agree with that desicion.

I think this is good. I also think it will be good for likes to be hidden!
