Why Does Instagram Stop You from Following People?

Instagram won't let users follow more people because of two things, firstly if the user has followed more people than the Instagram restricted amount which is 7500 or if the user is trying to follow someone who keeps their the account is private. 

In simple terms means that you cannot follow more people above 7500 or people who have a private account. Now if the private account users accept your request then you can follow them.

1. Hourly Problem 

Now if you want to follow more people, then it is recommended to free up some space by unfollowing people who do not follow you back. Please keep in mind that of the Instagram’s hourly rate policy which states that if you follow more than 120 people in an hour then their chances that chances are there that your account will get blocked.

2. Report Centre

Now if you have tried all these points that stated above and still did not able to follow people. Then go settings and uninstall the application. Install the application again and perform an update. Now go your profile and in the upper right corner, you will see a gear icon. Tap the icon and perform scrolling until you find an option which says “report a problem “.

This tool is very useful if you want to unfollow people in mass and in clearing up space and giving the facility to follow new people.

How to Tell if Someone Follows You on Instagram?

Whenever someone follows you, you get an instant notification. This happens when your account is public i.e. visible to all. However, if you have a private account then you get a ‘follow request’.

In this manner, you can moderate and manage about who can follow you and check your stuff.
