Facebook is going to add one of Instagram’s favourite features — “Close Friends” to the main app. The feature was added as a built-in privacy tool that let users choose to share story content to only a select group of followers, your close friends.

Many users do not want their boss or colleague seeing their partying images or edgy memes.

And Facebook-owned Instagram, instead of making a complicated set of Friend Lists, made a single Close Friends list with a dedicated button for sharing to them from Stories.
