After posting an Instagram story, you may be keen to find out who has viewed it. Here’s how to find out who’s seen your Instagram story in 2022.

Instagram has been a staple in millions of people’s daily social media routine for many years now, and while it started off as a place for people to primarily upload square images, the app has since expanded into a variety of different types of content.

This has included anything from Instagram Video to the TikTok-style Reels feature that’s popular with many users.

However, perhaps one of the most used tools on the platform is the ‘Story’ feature. This allows people to upload pictures or images that will only last for 24 hours, and you can customize which users are able to view these temporary posts. You can also make them more permanent by uploading them as highlights.

If you want to keep an eye on who specifically is or isn’t viewing your stories, you can do so simply from within the app.
