A woman has shared the sneaky way in which she finds out who is stalking her partner’s Instagram account, but many have argued that it’s ‘toxic’ and a ‘crazy’ thing to do in a relationship.
Megan Platt took to TikTok and captioned the post: “A tip for the girlies.”
In the controversial clip, she revealed that she uses the platform’s poll feature – which allows followers to vote on one of two options – to track who is watching her boyfriend’s social media stories.
By positioning the feature so only half of it’s showing on the phone screen, it doesn’t look like a poll at all.
As a result, many people presume that it’s just a link to the person’s profile when in reality, it’s actually giving you a list of people who would have actually clicked.
Since the TikToker shared the hack, it’s accumulated over 4.5 million times and many have said they think the idea is ‘hilarious’.
One viewer wrote: “I just did this and 100 people clicked.”
Another added: “I’m laughing way too hard right now because I’m imagining their faces when they realise.”
However, others argued that the list doesn’t prove anything at all.
Fighting their point, a TikToker said: “Looking at someone’s profile doesn’t mean anything. This is so jealous and insecure.”
A second user commented: “I’m nosey though, I’m not trying to steal anyone’s man.”
