Users on Instagram often strive to have as many followers as they can, but gaining a large audience of strangers inevitably makes them adjust what they’re allowing the world to see, keeping more private shares on Facebook or other social networks.

But Instagram wants people to have their cake and eat it too and is now adding a new feature that will let them do that. Called Closed Friends, the new utility lets you make a list of followers to exclusively share Instagram stories with. As the name suggests, the idea is to have your real-life friends in a separate inner-circle type group that will get to see shares that aren’t suitable for everyone's eyes.

When you’re creating an Instagram Story, you’ll now have an additional option called “Close Friends” and marked with a white star on a green background. If you tap on it, only the people on your Close friends list will be able to see the post, while the rest of your followers will be blissfully unaware.
