In June 2017, Instagram announced that it had started testing a feature it then called favorites, which was an attempt to reinvent the Friends List and encourage people to share more by letting them post to a more limited group of their followers. In response to the rise of Finstagrams, private accounts followed only by people closest Friends, companies seek to give users more tools for private sharing, with a suite of features that touch nearly every part of the App. Nearly 18 months later, Instagram twist on private sharing has arrive, and it looks much different than it did in 2017. Now called Close Friends, feature will be limited to stories. And while it has been scaled back from its earlier incarnation, Close Friends could still reshape social dynamics on Instagram. To use the new feature, open up Stories camera and take photo or video. After you finish your shot, youll notice a new green circle with a white star in it. Tap it, and youll be brought to Close Friends List where you can add people to your inner circle. Instagram will suggest friends to you based on people you interact with most, or you can use the search box to finish your list. In testing, people typically add around two dozen people, says Robby Stein, product lead at Instagram. When your list is finish, youll be able to share with your close friends by tapping the green circle whenever you capture a photo or video for stories. Once you do, your close friends will see green ring around your story on tray on top of the feed. Its visual signal that a close friend has shared something more privately with you, and it should stand out from standard pink - purple gradient rings. Friends are never notified that you added them to, or removed them from, your list. Unlike Finstagram, people ca request to join your circle of close friends. If theyre on your list, theyll see green rings when you post to your close friends; if theyre not, they wo But youll still maintain plausible deniability, Stein say, as most people will simply assume you haven't posted anything to your Close Friends group. Friend List arent new ideas and on most social networks, they have not succeed. As I write in 2017: this is a hard nut to crack, in part because social networks are dynamic, Stein say. People might be close friends one day and drift away from you over time. For Instagram, that means that adding and removing people to the list had to be as socially painless as possible. Companies hop that by stripping the list of all notifications outside green ring, they will succeed at letting people share with smaller groups. And I suspect Close Friends will be the only people using Close Friends. It is easy to imagine brands creating fan clubs or VIP lists in which people can opt in to receive additional posts.

The Roots

Thinking about cutting cord re: Instagram following the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal but worrying about losing all those precious memories you 've collected there over the years? Fear not: according to TechCrunch, social media site has finally launched Data Download tool so you can grab all your photos and videos before you leave. This feature was originally publicly requested by TechCrunch in an article in which they called out Instagram for not having a Download Your Information tool similar to that offered by its parent company, Facebook. The next day, Instagram announced that a tool was on its way, and with it, users would be able to export all their store content, including photos, videos, archive stories, profile info, comments, and non - ephemeral messages. Depending on how much stuff you 've uploaded over the years, it may end up taking up to a few days for your download to be ready. However, it's better than needing to go through shady third - party apps that require your password and other personal information in order to function. Right now, you can only access Data Download via web browser. However, spokesperson for Instagram confirmed to TechCrunch that mobile versions will be coming soon, allowing you to access them from your Instagram app's privacy settings:

Rainbow circle on Instagram story

Instagram has added the amazing feature of rainbow circle on Instagram story. Instagram users are aware of three colour borders that one can see on story post. If the circle around the profile picture is orange and pink, then the user has added a new post and it is an unseen post. If the circle is green, then a person's story can be watched by only those who are on the close friends list. If the circle is grey, then the user is up - to - date with all posts made by their friend. The Rainbow Instagram story feature has been added by the makers of the app so that users are able to indicate that they have posted something related to Pride Month and its related topics. This rainbow circle surrounds the profile picture of an Instagram user in the same way as other colours. This is also a way to show their love and support towards the LGBTQIA + community.
