Here's how to find out exactly who has unfollowed you on social media.

If social media accounts are anything to go by, we’re all immensely popular.

I mean, some of us have hundreds or even thousands of ‘friends’.

With all those best buds to keep track of, it can be hard to spot when one (or five) drop off every now and then.

Thankfully there are a number of ways to check who’s digitally ditched you, and therefore needs to be reciprocally un-followed ASAP.

Here are some of the best, according to Mic.

Instagram

Apps are your best option for Insta’ (that’s what the kids call it, right?) and, of those, Followers+ is the way to go.

Not only can you see who’s deleted you, but also who hasn’t followed you back, plus if you stump up for the ‘pro’ version you can get data on who your most engaged followers are.

Facebook

Facebook makes things a tad more tricky. Damn you, Zuckerberg!

But Mic recommends a succinctly named Who Deleted Me. It’s available on Android and Apple devices, or as a browser extension for your desktop computer.

It downloads your friendship list the first time you sign up, then cross-references against it against your current one each time you log in.

It can even distinguish whether the person who shunned you merely deactivated their Facebook account or straight-up deleted you.

Twitter

For Twitter, there are plenty of apps which claim to help you monitor your followers but Who.Unfollowed.Me is said to be the most “popular and effective”.

It’s a pretty rigorous system – it scans your list EVERY HOUR, in order to provide you with a detailed monthly engagement report.

And yes, it’ll also tell you who hasn’t followed you back.

So, get downloadin’, and sort your real virtual friends from the phonies.

Go on – there’s no way you’re not at least a teeny, tiny bit curious.
