Instagram Just Added That ONE Feature You've Been Waiting Years For

Finally! After all these years!
Up until now, there's only been one way of finding out who followed you back or even unfollowed you on Instagram and it always included a lot of scrolling through your follow list to find that one secret crush or frenemy. Later, Instagram introduced a search bar on your friends list but even that proved to be problematic at times - honestly, why can't people just use their real names on IG?!
There's been a ton of external apps that will tell you how many of your followers don't follow you back (rude) but now, Instagram have FINALLY cut out the middle man and added that one feature that we all take for granted on Twitter.
Behold, the brand new 'follows you' feature.

If you click on someone's profile, a new section called 'Following' will appear right under their name just above the 'Followed By' section. There, you'll be able to see whether or not the person is following you.

So now, when you realise your crush hasn't been liking your most recent pics, all you've gotta do is click their profile, just like on Twitter. For now, the update is only available on Android phones but is sure to be rolled out to iOS users very soon.
Instagram stalking made easy. Next on the agenda: Getting that timeline back to chronological.
