Do you want to find nearby Instagram users? Keep reading the article!

What makes social media so special is the ability to connect with people we don't know!

You don't need to open your radar so wide! We can interact with people near us by location and transfer ideas, opinions, tastes, etc.

Instagram is a great source of information and you can learn a lot of new things about your city or neighborhood just by following nearby Instagram accounts.

But how? How can I find Instagram users near me?

You are not the only one who is looking for answers. People are asking this question on open forums.

This is an example from Quora:

And this is another example from Reddit:

In this article, I will show you how to find nearby Instagram users!

Let's begin!

How can I find nearby Instagram users?

You should follow these steps to find Instagram accounts near you! With this method, you can find any Instagram account by location.

Step#1: Open the Instagram app and go to the search bar.

Step#2: Type in your city or neighborhood.

I typed "Leiden".

Step#3: Tap on the "Places" tab.


Step#4: You'll see a list of accounts that have been tagged with that location.

You can find top Instagram users near you. Also, you will find those who recently posted in that location.

Find top posts near you

Step#5: You can also use hashtags to find people who are near you. For example, if you live in London, you could search for #london and other related hashtags.


Then you will see Instagram posts with #london. They are probably posted by Instagram users who are located near London. You can find nearby Instagram accounts by your location.

How can I find people on Instagram without their usernames?

You are in a nightclub and have someone in sight. You don't have the courage to ask his/her name. You can add him/her on Instagram, right? But you don't know the username.

Don't worry!

Type your location on Instagram with all details, the name of the nightclub for example.  

Then check if he or she has ever shared a post in that location. You can also use hashtags as I showed above.
