Remove Instagram Followers & Change your active status notification

Remove Instagram followers & change your activity status

Instagram’s testing new feature – remove followers from public accounts. Users you choose to remove aren’t notified about the action

Users with private accounts had this function to remove followers for some time, so they can already do this. But the limitation is that you have to switch your account to private – which is not an option for brand accounts.

To check if you have this ability, go to your own profile page, tap on followers, and then you should see an icon with three vertical dots to the far right of a user’s name. Tapping on that brings up the prompt to remove someone. See picture below.

Another new option on Instagram  – You can see when your friends are online. This week, Instagram  has announced a new ‘green dot’ indicator to show when your connections are active

“When your friends are active on Instagram, you’ll see a green dot next to their profile picture in various spaces within the app, including the Direct inbox and your friend list when you share a post from feed. You will only see status for friends who follow you or people who you have talked to in Direct. You can easily hide your own status and turn off the ability to see when your friends are active in your settings.”
