I’m in a weird situation where I want to remain connected with someone on IG yet at the same time there seems to be no way to prevent them from viewing my own followers and following. Anyone know of a way to make this work?
No, as far as I can tell. The closest thing to what you’re suggesting would be to set your account to private, remove that person as a follower, and remain following that person. That way, you’d still see their posts, but they couldn’t see your posts, followers, or following. But I think anyone who has the ability to view your posts also has the ability to see who you’re following/are followed by.
