Threads also provide the ability to view and manage your following list. Your following list consists of the people you follow on the platform, enabling you to see their updates and stay connected with them more closely.
When you installed the Threads app and completed the initial setup, you might have had the option to import your followers from Instagram. If you chose that option, you might be receiving notifications on Threads about your Instagram followers who have also joined the app.
However, if you want to check which of your followers haven’t installed Threads, a feature lets you see the complete list of people you have requested to follow. This followers list can help you identify who hasn’t joined the new Threads yet.
Apart from the users you follow on Instagram, you may have also followed people on Threads. With numerous notifications on your phone, locating the individuals you have sent follow requests to can be challenging.
Additionally, you might want to check the status of your requests to see if they have been accepted or are still pending. To simplify the process, we have outlined a set of instructions below that will guide you on how to view the list of people you have requested to follow on Threads.
