    So in the past I have been focusing a lot (maybe too much) on follower growth. To maximize the nr. of accounts to follow/unfollow daily I set the filters very loose for quite some time, only neglecting to not follow people who have no avatar for example.

    Now my engagement recently has dropped quite a lot. When I scroll through the feed of my personal account it takes some time before I see content of the accounts I manage (which are 7 all of which I post on nearly daily). I see a lot more content of Facebook friends I follow even though they don't post nearly as much.

    So long story short, I need to increase engagement so I show up in the standard newsfeeds more often again. ​

    To do that I want to identify my inactive followers and 1ST: try to activate them again by liking some of their posts. 2ND: Delete them since they are probably not interested or perhaps even fake accounts (never bought followers btw) so I don't need them anyway.

    I purchased InsTrack (ios app) to identify these ghost followers but it doesn't seem to work, also with large accounts this is quite a hassle because you can't export the list into a csv anyway.

    MY QUESTION IS: Has anybody already had success identifying (perhaps activating) their inactive followers? If yes, could you share how?

    My idea was perhaps Follow Liker could scrape users who liked or commented on my content in the past. These are your whitelisted followers. then scrape all followers and subtract the whitelisted so you are left with your ghost followers.

    I am no expert with FL so before I waste a lot of time I thought to share it here, maybe there are more people who ran into this before me..

    What I like to do is block users that haven't posted anything in the last 14 days. These users are usually not active on IG and bring down your engagement.

    You sure about that?
    My sister has only posted three photos over 1.5 years but spends 1-2 hours per day liking and tagging her friends on pictures.
    Also, my little brother has no pic at all but also uses ig daily (he doesn't like / comment much, but he checks out new posts)
    15 and 17 years old. They might be just exceptions though.
