Instagram Stories are a huge hit with users around the world. They are fun, customizable and great entertainment. They’re as much fun to create as they are to view. You’d love feedback from others if you have used Instagram’s Stories feature.
This edition of Tips and Tricks focuses on how to find out who has viewed your Instagram stories.
How to see who viewed your Instagram story
Most people like to share things, but the best part about sharing is finding out who has seen it. Everyone wants to know who is checking in on us. You can view every person who viewed your Stories once you have posted them. Here’s how:
- Open Instagram, and tap on the Story icon at the upper left corner.
- You will find another user’s profile icon in the lower left corner. This means that someone has viewed your Story.
- To view the list of users who have viewed your content, tap on the icon.
- If the icon is not visible in the lower left corner, it means that nobody has seen your Story.
- To double-check that your Story has not been viewed by other users, swipe up at the bottom. No names will be listed.
You now know how to view who has viewed your Story. There are still many things to learn.
Two reasons your first Story will be more popular than your last: If someone swipes right, they will always see your original Story. You can also skip the rest by simply swiping right. To see all your stories, including your first, click on the Seen By… link in the lower left-hand corner.
How to check your Instagram Story Analytics
Analytics can be viewed in a different way than the views we have discussed above. Analytics will not tell you who viewed your content but they can give you valuable insight into how Stories are performing. Analytics is an excellent tool for influencers and marketers alike. It shows you how many people are reaching your content, as well as how many views it has had.
Next, you need to verify your analytics.
This list will be available if you have a business account. You can then do the following:
- Keep track of how many people have seen your story
- Your story is over
- Follow the person who saw your story.
These features can be helpful if your goal is to build a good following for your Instagram account.
- To see your analytics click or press the icon (marked with the red box) to open the page. These statistics are not important if you don’t care about growing your channel. However, they can be very useful.
- Click back on your smartphone to exit these screens and return to the home screen.
Privacy is yours. You can only see who visited your Story and how many times. You’ll be grateful for the little details if it’s a complete failure.
You can view who viewed your Instagram Stories. It’s not difficult, as you can see. Follow the guide above and you will be good to go.
Do you have concerns about someone viewing your stories?
Privacy is a concern for many people, but at what point should I worry about it?” This is especially true for social media and the internet. There are many reasons why you might want to know who is reading your content.
Do you want to impress one person and hope that they notice? Do you want to chart your way to Instagram fame? Are you concerned that someone might be viewing your content for malicious purposes?
It’s easier to ask your crush or influencer if they noticed your Stories. You can’t see how many times you viewed them.
If you want to track your journey to fame on Instagram, you can switch to a Professional account. You will get real-time updates as well as analytics.
Finally, if someone stalks or harasses you, block them. It’s really that easy. You can also report abusive Instagram users or those who use your Instagram Story for reasons not in accordance with the Community Guidelines.
Is it possible to view a story without the creator knowing?
You may be concerned about your security and want to find out if anyone can see your Story without being detected. Although some websites and apps claim to be able to view your content, they don’t allow anyone to see it if it is private or if you are not your friend.
Although it is a popular workaround, many Instagram users love it. However, it is a bit tricky and shows only a preview of the Story. It is possible to pause the Story and see the next one without being aware of it.
Selecting a Story from the right could be used to long-press the Story currently selected and then drag the screen to the right to preview your Story. You wouldn’t know that the user was interested in your Story if they didn’t open it all the way.
If they scrolled all the way to their right, Instagram would recognize that they have opened your Story and send you a notification. It can be difficult, as we mentioned.
