    when someone types ATmyusername, it's suppose to show it on the activity on bottom.... but it doesn't. hasn't been working for about a month now, and since no new activities (at least IG doesn't think i have), my activity section is deleted. I know people are typing ATmyusername but It's not showing up on my notifications. I even tried typing AT myusername from a different IG name...still doesn't work.

    I have IG on iphone, ipod and macbook (bluestacks app), doesn't work on any of my usernames on any of those platforms. any idea?

    will give thanks and shout out on IG with real 94k followers.

    It's because your notifications thing is 'full'. Same thing happens when you get 80 likes in a picture, 5 + last 75 likes are shown. If you do something about all 1000 requests, that leaves room for more activity- such as mentions and likes. Hope that helps! :)

    Correct. If you are using the smartphone apps provided by Instagram your recent interactions will be capped at 80 events, be they likes, comments, follows, or photos of you.

    Happy hunting!

    Why you have 94k followers with a private page anyways ? I don't understand if your not accepting the respects.

    You have too many notifications. There is a limit to pending requests. This is why your activity has been deleted somehow. Attend to these notifications first and if you are still having problems, try to uninstall the application and re-install it again. Sometimes there are glitches with the apps that Instagram is not even aware of.

    OK i think you guys are wrong, I think i figured it out....

    I do think friend requests showing...they only show 1,000.
    As for activity, I think from now on, if it is on someone else's page, and they type [atsign]myname, it will only show me alert if (1) I am public or (2) if i am private and that person follows me. Use to show it even if the person wasn't following. I guess instagram thought "if he's private, and doesn't approve the person, I guess he doesn't want others to bother him"
