Even if you’re not a social media guru or marketer, a loyal following can still be important to you. That’s why it’s always disheartening when you see that follower count drop by one (or more!) — especially when you have no idea who the unfollower(s) is / are.
Luckily, rather than the sketchy Chrome extensions and Facebook add-ons from the early days of social media that claimed to do this, there are tons of professional-level social media management tools available, so you can finally figure out who your unfollowers are.
Here are three of the best and most popular social media management apps.
Formerly known as Unfollowers, Statusbrew is a social media monitoring and engagement tool. Statusbrew lets you keep tabs on your Twitter and Instagram followers, you can finally get to the bottom of the question: “Who unfollowed me?”
As an added bonus, Statusbrew can flag spam accounts so you don’t inadvertently follow them back. Status view is free to use with limited features on a basic plan, and is available on both Android and iOS.
Crowdfire is a social media engagement app that’s available for a variety of platforms — Android and iOS included. It’s well-designed and easy to use, and is one of the more popular social media tools available. Not only can you can see who unfollowed you, but the app offers a ton of insights and features that’ll help you achieve Instagram or Twitter fame.
