Now you can share your close friends on Instagram stories. You can now make a close friend list on Stories and at the same time share with the people you have just added. With stories you get to express yourself and can share everyday moments.
When we have only close friends, we get comfortable to share more personal moments with a smaller group that we choose. For the purpose of adding people on the list you need to firstly go to your profile and than select on "Close Friends" in the side menu.
The close friends list will only be seen by you and no one can request you to add them. If someone adds you to their friends list you will see a green badge while viewing their stories. Apart from the green badge, you will also see a green ring around their profile photo in the stories tray.
This feature is said to roll out globally on the latest version of Instagram for iOS and Android.
