Did you know Instagram allows you to see the accounts you interact with the least?

In an effort to be transparent about the way their algorithm works, Instagram created a tool in 2020 that shows you the 50 accounts you have interacted with the least in the past 90 days. It's available under your "Following" list and features the accounts whose posts you haven't liked and stories you haven't reacted to in a while. It's a great tool to help you unfollow accounts that are just clogging up your feed.

We will walk you through how to access your "Least Interacted With" list on IG:

1. Open your Instagram profile.

2. Tap "Following."

Once you tap "Least Interacted With" you will be shown the list of the accounts that you have interacted with the least in the past 90 days.

4. Unfollow at your leisure.

Happy unfollowing!
