    Hi BHW,

    I've ran into a problem on Instagram I haven't seen before.
    I have an account which apparently follows 440 users but I can't see those I follow.
    I can only see my own posts in my newsfeed as well.

    The thing is, I have been unfollowing users because I used to follow 7500 people and I wanted to get it down to 0.

    To sum up, I am stucked with 440 users I apparently follow but I can't unfollow them and I can't see any their posts.

    Has anyone had the same problem?

    Thanks

    You may have hit your limit of 'unfollow'. or just log out and log back in your app might just show a number but it actually has less than that number

    Those must be deactivated accounts or deleted ones, wait for some time, Your counter will be fixed. :)

    It has been like this for a couple of weeks though.

    Interesting, this might be the problem.
    Do you have any idea about how long time it takes before it'll get fixed?

    It's because you have a limit, write to a facebook. I had same problem.
