Why isn't my follower count exact?
Difference in Follower Count between Instagram and Surf Analytics? It's to be expected, and doesn't actually affect your overall metrics!
Surf Analytics profile database is the largest in the world, at over 1.3B individual users, and we use that database to generate your report from your Data Download.
If you find that your report is missing followers, it’s because those followers are not in our profile database. Of these accounts, a large percentage will be bots, since the data we can gather on these profiles is limited.
