Once you start using Instagram, you start to accumulate followers over time and these followers can be your friends, colleagues, brands, or completely unknown people who may be following you for the content that you post. However, we all have our personal lives, and sometimes, there may be stories that you post, but you want only a few of your close friends to see them and interact with them. To cater to this exact requirement, Instagram introduced the ‘close friends’ feature. Using this, you can make a list of users that you want to be part of your close friend’s circle, and whenever you post a story under the ‘close friends’ tag, only these select few users will be able to see it on the platform.
Making this close friends list is super simple and you can add or remove users from this list, as many times as you want. For now, though, let’s take a look at how to set up the close friends list on Instagram.
Step 1. Open the Instagram app on your smartphone. (Android or iOS).
Step 2. Tap on the profile thumbnail at the bottom right-hand side of the home page to open up your profile.
