Other Ways to View Sent Requests on Instagram

If making use of either of the two methods seems like a struggle to you, you can apply other methods to find out those that you have requested to follow that may have denied the request or those you are yet to send the Follow request to.

 

Check Out Those Who Liked Your Post

You can see those who have denied your sent Follow request by checking your likes section.

Select a post, preferably, a recent post and check out those who liked the post.

There will be a separation between those you are either Following or are Following you and those that you are not connected with.

If you have sent a Follow request and still find the Follow box close to the username, it means that the Follow request sent to that account has been denied.

You can do a resend if necessary and at the same time can send Follow requests to other accounts that have liked your post but you are not connected to if you wish to.

 

Check Through a Third-Party Account

If you are interested in expanding your network on Instagram, then, you can take the liberty to check the Following section of a friend’s account and find out people you should be connecting with but are yet to do so.
