- You will see two tabs- one shows you the number of followers you have and second reads Close Friends.
In October, Instagram appointed long-term insider Adam Mosseri as the head of the photo-sharing app following the high-profile exits of the photo-sharing app's co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger.
In its latest update, Instagram has announced a twist on private sharing, enabling users of the platform to post Stories to a limited group of followers.
Called Close Friends, the feature allows you to choose whether an image is shared with the masses or just people on your close friends list when you add it to a story.
Once you click on the hamburger icon, you'll find the "Close Friends List" as the fourth option.
There are some major differences between Instagram Stories and YouTube's iteration of the feature. No wonder the Stories feature boasts of more than 400 million daily activities users (DAU). That's meant to make you feel comfortable adjusting it however you want at any time.
"Instagram Stories has become the place to express yourself and share everyday moments, but our community has grown and sometimes what you want to share isn't for everyone".
On Thursday, YouTube began rolling out a mobile platform feature reminiscent of the highly-trendy Snapchat Stories, a feature that basically all the most popular social media platforms have created their own version of.
"These new measures will be ongoing, and accounts that continue to use third-party apps to grow their audience may see their Instagram experience impacted", the company said.
Keep your friends close ... and your close friends closer? From there you can manage it, add some of the suggested people, or remove some, and more.
You can create just one Close Friends group, though, rather than separate ones for families, friends and other circles, as you can on the main Facebook service. Additionally, they'll see a green "Close Friend" badge on the story when they actually view it.
