Where to see the number of people who have seen my Instagram story?
Before we start, we must remind you that Instagram is not only a social network where you can upload photos or short videos on your wall. Since nowadays you can also upload longer videos, with the new option to edit Instagram IGTV videos.
Which will allow you to save videos and upload them to this function, thus, your followers will be able to see those videos that you post daily for a longer time. Now that you know this, let’s tell you how you can see who visited your story, for this first of all Log in to my Instagram account.
After this you are going to go to the story you want to see the people who have seen it and slide the screen upwards after this you will see the number of people who have seen your story. On the other hand, a tip that we can give you so that your Instagram stories have more visits, is to make a video with the music that Instagram provides you in the stories.
With the aim that people who visit your profile, interact more and feel identified with the song by the video clip, in this way, you will have more organic views.
How to know which users saw the Instagram stories?
To know which users viewed your Instagram story, you must do the same procedure as well as when you see the number of visitors, because when you see the number of visitors you will also be able to see the user’s profile picture and the user’s name.
This way you will have a better management of your Instagram account and you will know which people interact more with your content or who visit your profile the most. However, if for some reason you have deleted the story you posted on Instagram, this will allow you to recover the deleted story by mistake, so you can upload the deleted story again.
Okay, now that you know this, let’s give you the steps you must follow to see the users who have seen your story, from the contacts added to your Instagram, to the people who are not in your list of followers.
It should be noted that in this part, two factors play, one if you have a private account and the other if you have your public account, since, if you have the private account, only those people you have added as your followers or friends will appear. They will appear with their normal profile.
But if you have a public account, it is possible that both your followers and strangers can view your content. So it is recommended that if you have it public, you change it to private, if your goal is to prevent strangers from seeing your content.
As we said in the previous paragraph, if you have your Instagram account public, people who do not follow you may be able to see your stories. To identify this type of people simply slide the story or photo up, and you will notice that some users will appear with their name and normal photo and some will appear in gray.
Well, those users that appear in gray are those people that you have not added to your account and that as you have it public can access your story freely and see them without following you.
And so you can verify this, click on the user that appears in gray and you will notice that when you enter their profile they do not have any relationship with you, that is, they do not follow you nor do they follow people related to you.
For this reason, keeping a good management of your Instagram stories, will allow you to recognize all those people who do not follow you or who see your stories from this different accounts, in order to keep your security and privacy safe.
Why is it not possible to see the people who saw my stories?
On many occasions, we have found that we can’t see the total amount of people who see my stories, but if you see it from another account if and with another phone if you can see the total amount.
As far as I know if this happens the main thing you should do is to report to Instagram this failure through their help mailbox, and they will help you solve this problem, as this failure often occurs in those phones with iOS operating system.
