Instagram will not show who visited your profile, confirms Meta spokesperson

A joke released this week by youtuber and streamer Goularte caused a huge uproar on the internet for claiming that Instagram, a social network belonging to Meta, would now display a list of users who visited its profile on the platform, a radical change that was even notified by important media outlets – the AllCellular didn’t fall for the prank.

In a montage released by the content creator, it was possible to see a “new function” that showed in full the profile of everyone who visited their account in the last 24 hours. The arrival of the supposed novelty scared the community and, as usual, generated good memes on the subject on Twitter.

In response to the backlash of the matter, a spokesperson for Meta debunked the rumors stating that “we inform you that the Instagram rumors showing people who visited profiles in the ‘Activity’ tab are not true”, revealing that the developer has no plans to implement this tool in the application.

As revealed by Goularte in a video published on TikTok, all this “misunderstanding” was nothing more than a prank created by him to instigate his followers, however, the joke took great proportions that were not foreseen by the youtuber requiring a position from the company .

To convey credibility, he used the same font adopted by Instagram in the interface of the social network and edited the elements of the image in Photoshop, in addition to hiding alleged names of followers. Below are some reactions from the community:
