    I do manual following, so when I want to follow someone, I don't know if there account is private or not until I actually follow them. Granted, I can actually click on the profile to see if it is private, but that is far too time consuming. Does anyone know if there are any apps out there that already show whether or not an account is private or public when you're going through someone's follow list? So that I can avoid following private users.

    Just exercise your fingers. I do it manually as well and it takes me almost nothing to "Press on Profile"->"Follow"/skip->"Press back" on my phone with the other hand..

    You have two hands train to use them both..

    Best Regards,

    What if I told you that following Private profiles is as rewarding as following Public profiles?
    I follow them both and my CTR and CVR(Conversion rates) are always the same. Sure,it doesn't add up in your "Following" but don't care too much about it when you're doing things manually.

    Phonegram on Android is the only app where you can see if the account is private straight from the list..it even gives you the follower/following count on public ones. Trouble is, much like most apps now, you can only follow 20 per hour. Please note that it may appear that you can follow more (button changes colour as usual) but your count doesn't change on instgram app after the 20 follows.

    So does this mean that a private account can see my photos, like, comment or share, but the private user just wont count on as a follower in my stats?
