How Can You See if Someone is Not Following You on Facebook

You won’t get a notification if someone unfollows or unfriends you on Facebook, but there’s a way to confirm if someone is on your list of followings.

This is exclusively for those who’ve added the follow button to their profile instead of the regular “Add friend” button. To learn how to do this, read our article on how to add the follow button to your personal Facebook account.

To see if someone is not following you, log into the Facebook app or web > go to your profile > click on followers > input the name into the box, and search for the user.

If any profile with the inputted name is following you, it should come up, but if they’ve unfollowed you, their name won’t be on the search results list.

However, aside from unfollowing you on Facebook, other reasons will make a person’s name not appear on your following list.

So, don’t conclude until you’re done reading this article…

How do you know if someone unfollowed you on Facebook

Facebook has made it easy to verify if someone has followed you, whether you’re using the app or the web.

Here’s how to see if someone is not following you on Facebook using the Facebook App.

  1. Open the Facebook or Facebook Lite app
  2. Go to your profile
  3. Tap the followers option to see the number of followers and their names.
  4. Use the search box to sort the list, or scroll down to review your followers.

That’s all.

Now, the steps are similar if you’re using the website version.

  1. Go to and login to your account
  2. Tap on the 3 vertical icons and click “View your profile.
  3. Tap on the followers option to see all your followers
  4. Use the search box to sort the list, or scroll down to review your followers.

That’s it.

If you can’t find the person’s name on your followers list, then there’s a possibility that he/she is not following you on Facebook.

However, let’s not rule out that Facebook may have temporarily or permanently suspended their account. To confirm this, search for their name on the Facebook search.

If the name comes up, it’s evident that they’ve unfollowed you, but if it doesn’t, then there’s a possibility that the account has been suspended, deleted, or the user has blocked you.

Also, Facebook says, “In professional mode, the number of followers includes friends, but you won’t see their names and profile pictures in the list.

This means that users on your friend list before converting your account to a follow-only account are your followers, but they won’t appear on the list of followers.

This implies that there’s only one way to verify if they’re still following you – searching for them on Facebook, – clicking on their profile, and if you are still friends with them, then the following is intact.


Here are some things to take away from the above explanation before concluding that someone isn’t following you on Facebook.

  1. Confirm that the user account hasn’t been suspended or deleted by searching for them on Facebook. If possible, use a different account in case you’ve been blocked.
  2. Confirm that you aren’t friends with the person before you switch to a professional account.
  3. Check if you and the person are still friends if option 2 exists.

That’s all.


How do you know if someone unfollowed you?

Can someone tell you don’t follow them on Facebook?
