Can You See Who Unfollowed You On Mixer?
Last Updated: November 15, 2019
Can you see who unfollowed you on Mixer? Is there a bot that can notify you of who unfollowed you and when? How can you stop people unfollowing a channel when you’re streaming? These are all questions we have seen in the SwipeTips mailbox over the past couple months so it’s high time we addressed them.
Followers and likes are the currency of social media and have been since its inception. While it is gradually becoming less important to more experienced users, younger users still count their self-worth by the number of likes they get or followers they have. It’s a strange setup caused entirely by social networks and their introduction of this divisive measure.
Can you see who unfollowed you on Mixer?
Annoyingly, the networks will show you likes and follows because they want you to get the positive feedback loop experience. They won’t show you unfollows because it may cause you to not use the network as often. Not showing the negative also works for you as a user, especially if you’re one of those whose self-worth is influenced by such things. Mixer is one of those social platforms that won’t show you unfollows.
Is there a bot that can notify you of who unfollowed you and when?
There are rumored to be bots that record such things but I can find no evidence they exist. I have checked the more well-known bot repositories and Reddit and cannot find evidence of a bot that actually can detect let alone record and notify of an unfollow.
If you know of a bot that can do this, let us know!
There is a website that says it can track who unfollowed you but I have no idea if it works or not. Reviews do seem positive but I don’t personally know anyone who has used it so have no idea if it works or if those reviews are real or not.
If you have used this website, let us know about that too!
How can I stop people unfollowing my channel when I’m streaming?
The short answer to this question is also the least helpful. You stop people unfollowing you by being interesting and entertaining. That’s much easier said than done of course but there are some tips that pro streamers provide about making it online.
Those tips include:
Choose your game
If you have a personality that works in a stream, you can afford to play a range of games and still get viewers. If you don’t have such a compelling personality, it pays to find a game you love and stick to streaming that. As you build an audience, they will tune in regularly to watch you play their favorite game. This should minimize unfollows until you change game.
Have a plan b
Games don’t last forever so becoming a Fortnite streamer is fine while Fortnite is still huge but what about after? You may find it impossible to believe but all games come and go and there will be a time when huge games are nothing but a footnote in gaming history or played by just a few niche players. If you want to keep streaming, you’ll need another game to play to keep your audience happy.
Be dedicated and consistent
Despite what it may look like, streaming is work. Some streamers will put in 10-12 hours a day every day to make it a success. Even if they make it look easy, there is so much going on behind the scenes to make the stream look effortless. Put the work in and you should increase the quality of your own stream.
Consistently put the hours in and your audience will know when and for how long you stream and will reward that by tuning in often.
Build a community
Mixer is a two-way street. Chat is a to and fro of conversation and you need to be in the middle of that. You need to not only play the game and be entertaining but also respond to comments, answer any questions and interact as much as possible Using names is also a very useful way to help build a feeling of community on the platform.
If followers feel valued and are entertained, they will return. If chat is interesting, they learn something new or have a good time, they will keep coming back for more.
While it may be frustrating, I think it’s a good idea Mixer doesn’t let you see unfollows. Concentrating too much on the numbers can detract from the overall experience and if you’re not having a good time on Mixer, it will come across on your stream. If you’re not having a good time, your audience won’t either and we all know where that ends!
