Sometime we need to develop the application where we need to get user details with their followers like "Instagram" app.
In Instagram app when you visit the user profile, you will see the total number of posts, their followers and following count.

First i will use the MySQL raw query to get details in following way :MySQL Raw Query
SELECT users.*, (SELECT count(*) FROM user_followers WHERE user_followers.user_id = users.id ) as total_followers FROM `users`Laravel Query Builder
Now I will write the query in Laravel to achieve same functionality.
$data = \DB::table("users") ->select("users.*", \DB::raw("(SELECT count(*) FROM user_followers WHERE user_followers.user_id = users.id ) as total_followers")) ->get(); dd($data);
