Instagram has become one of the most commonly used social networking applications. Businesses have also started using this as a medium to spread the word about their product. Now while so many people are following you on Instagram, you would always be curious about who all have viewed your picture or not. However, you cannot see the names for the people who have ‘viewed’ your picture or a video that you posted on Instagram.
You Can Only See the Names of People Who Have Liked Your Picture
Instagram shows you the names of the people who have liked your picture on Instagram, or a video that you have uploaded on your account. In addition to this, you can see who viewed your story on Instagram as well. But, if someone has just viewed your pictures, Instagram does not show you the names for these accounts. Privacy settings for this cannot be changed by any user.
What Can be Done if Someone Wants to See the Names of People Who Viewed Their Posted Picture
To be honest, you cannot do anything to breakthrough this privacy provided by Instagram to these viewers. But, there are applications that help you to see who has viewed your Instagram. However, using these applications is not a suggested way, as often it requires you giving important information about your Instagram to the app you are about to use.
Can You At Least See the Number of Viewers on Your Instagram Posts
Of course YES! You can! But, this is only possible for accounts that are being used as a business account. You don’t actually have to be a business to have a business account. It is just a switch between a private and business account which can be changed by you. In a business account, you can view the number of views you have had on your posts, and you can also see the number of people who have screenshot-ed your posts. The steps below will help you how you can find this number on your account.
- Sign in to your business account and make sure you are on your home page for Instagram, which is where you see all the pictures and videos you have posted. There are two ways to access the insights on your posts.
