How to create a Close Friends list for your Instagram Stories

Instagram close friends

Did you know Instagram has a feature where you can handpick friends or followers to share private Instagram Stories posts with?

You can use it to share content that you only want certain people to see, like pics of your kids, or that sneaky online purchase you’d like to show your besties.

Tip

You can use this feature for your business, and instead of ‘close friends’, use it to create a list of VIP clients that you share select content with.

To create your Instagram Close Friends list:

➡️ Tap the menu button (three lines) at the upper right.

➡️ Tap close friends.

➡️ Add friends to your list.

You can add and remove followers from the list at any time.

To share content with your close friends

➡️ Open Stories and upload the content you want to post.

➡️ Tap the Close Friends button at the bottom of the page. 

Your content will be shared to those people on your list and will be hidden from your other followers.
Your Close Friends will know that you have posted a story for them because the ring around your profile pic is now green rather than the normal rainbow colour. There’ll also be a green star badge in the story that indicates that content has been shared with close friends only. Like regular Instagram Stories, your Close Friends story will only be available to view for only 24 hours.

I hope you found that useful and you can now create a Close Friends list.
