Target the followers or followings of specific Instagram users.

Targeting the followers or followings of Instagram users is a great way to engage with your competitor’s followers, or piggyback off of similar accounts.

Select targeting source

Using Targeting source: Followers, Followings, Likers, and/or Commenters works best when you input high quality accounts.

Then, scroll down to the Usernames section of your Activity page and click the Add button.

Add Usernames

Simply type in a username to the search field on the Add Usernames interface and click the Search button to see usernames matching your search.


You can search multiple times without needing to close the popup. Simply click the box next to the username you want, and continue searching and adding usernames.

Important information

Add at least one username to get data from if you are using Followers/Followings/Likers/Commenters as your Targeting source.

You can add up to 100 usernames.

When you’re finished, don’t forget to click the blue Add button to add all of your usernames to your Targeting. And of course, click the Start/Stop button on your Activity page to restart your activity after changing your settings.

Delete all Usernames at once

If you’re ready to test a new group of usernames, and want to easily delete all your Usernames in one go, simply click the drop down arrow next to the Add button under Usernames. Here you can select Delete all usernames.

Optimizing your Usernames

It’s important that you do your research to ensure that you’re targeting high quality accounts. IGplan works best when you engage in high quality targeting. Look for usernames with high like and comment ratios per photo in relation to total follower count.
