Instagram has long had a list of close friends to help us share our content with a small, targeted group of people. Thus, when we create a story, we can quickly and easily share it only with those closest to us or with whom we have a deeper relationship. Here, we explain in detail how to create and add new accounts to your best friend list.

The first thing you should do is go to your profile. Once there, tap on the three horizontal lines.

From this moment on, when you create a new story, you can share it exclusively with the people on this list. Simply tap on the Close friends button that will appear at the bottom of the screen.

Regarding this function, we must clarify something for you. Nobody will know the content of this list, so we can say that it is totally private. So, if you add or remove someone from your list, Instagram will never notify them. Also, you can modify it whenever you consider necessary, for example, by adding new contacts or deleting current ones. Thanks to this feature, you will improve the privacy of your posts and direct them to the right audience.
