Please don’t think ill of me

So the guy asks, “Can your friends on Instagram see what feeds you are following?” Which is a reasonable enough question, but then he explains:

Sometimes people will ask to follow me on Instagram, but I really only follow channels like @hotbabes, @sexywomen, etc. so I don’t want them to think I’m a scumbag and shallow.

First answer should break his heart, or at least his concentration:

Yes. They absolutely can see who you are following. Go to anyone’s profile — anyone at all, not just people you follow or who follow you — and click on “following” in the top right. There you go — all your sex channels show up for everyone to see.

I’d suggest he throw in some decoys, though it might be tricky to find, for example, @fansofwallacestevens.
