    It's easy to find out who viewed your Instagram story. All you have to do is tap on your Story Circle, swipe up and you will be presented with a list of people who have seen it. But is it possible to see who views your Instagram Stories and posts the most? Can you find out who follows your profile on Instagram? If so, how can you do it? These are just some of the questions this article will answer. Stay tuned if you want to learn more about the world's most popular social media platform.

    How to check Instagram messages on your PC


    It would be quite interesting to know who views your Instagram Stories the most. Unfortunately, Instagram doesn't have such a feature as it would violate the network's privacy policy.

    However, there are a couple of tricks you can use to figure out if you have a stalker who breaks you. Keep in mind that the following methods are not 100% reliable, so you should take the results with a pinch of salt.


    How many times have you checked if someone viewed your story just seconds after posting it? Probably more than a couple of times, right?

    Believe it or not, this habit can actually help you spot suspects for the ongoing question.

    When you first open the Instagram app on your smartphone, the first circles you meet are posted by your closest friends. To be more specific, they come from people you interacted with the most.

    This means you liked their posts, viewed their profiles, stories, and most likely chatted with them. While it has a strong impact, chat isn't the crucial criterion for some profiles to appear first on Instagram Story.

    You will most likely tap on the first Story Circle in your feed and scroll through for subsequent ones. This is exactly what other people do too.

    So if you notice that a particular profile always displays your Stories first, chances are they are following your profile.

    Track profiles that appear in the story viewer list within seconds of uploading a story. These are probably the profiles that see your content the most. With any luck, you may find that your secret crush is your number one stalker.

    How to know if someone has stopped following you on Instagram


    True Instagrammers know that certain people always appear first on their story viewer lists. Regardless of who viewed your story first, the primary accounts on this list are likely almost always the same. But why, you may ask.

    The answer lies in the Instagram interaction algorithm, which we will explain later in the article. For now, suffice it to say that the list of story viewers is always organized according to certain criteria.

    For example, if someone who isn't following you views your Story, their profiles will likely appear last in the Story Viewers list. On the other hand, if you like certain people's posts, constantly look at their stories, or have occasionally exchanged a few messages with them, they will most likely always take the top spot on this list. 

    The high point may change from time to time, but the profiles you interact with the most will always be somewhere near the top.

    So, if those names consistently appear at the top of the story viewer list, it's likely to appear on theirs as well. In other words, your Story Circle could be their first tap when they open Instagram.

    Although Instagram hasn't officially confirmed this, there is more than enough evidence to conclude that the interaction algorithm really exists.

    The purpose of this algorithm is to determine the type of content and profiles with which users interact most. So while you use Instagram as you normally would, this algorithm is collecting data in the background.

    The algorithm "remembers" the profiles you have visited, the posts you liked and the stories you have touched. Some experts even claim that this algorithm tracks the time you spend on certain Instagram Stories.

    After gathering a certain amount of information, the algorithm can figure out which profiles you interact with the most. That's why your closest friends almost always appear first in the Instagram story timeline. This is also why you constantly see certain profiles in the Suggested section.

    While this algorithm is usually perfect, it can also make miscalculations. For example, if you recently followed an Instagram profile and they followed you, the algorithm could "read" it as a strong interaction.


    While there are no official features, there are methods you can use to figure out who views your Stories the most. As already mentioned, none of the methods described above should be considered conclusive proof that someone is stalking your profile.
