Instagram testing out a new Favorites feature

Instagram logoWhen it comes to privacy on instagram, users have the option of setting their profiles to private or public. They can also block users, delete comments, and so on. However in terms of being able to share their content with a specific group of people, thats one feature that has been missing from Instagram, but that could change in the near future.

In a report from The Verge, it seems that Instagram is testing out a Favorites feature that lets users choose who they want to share their content with. This sounds like it would be similar to Facebook where users can choose their audience, which groups of people to include or exclude, and so on.

Instagram testing out a new Favorites feature

This is something that users have been trying to do themselves for a while now which are called Finstagrams, where these are private Instagram accounts that only follow a handful of users and who only allow a handful of users to follow them, and photos are deleted once friends have acknowledged them with a Like. This is something that Instagram has recognized and is trying to solve with the new Favorites feature.

This lets users create a list of people they want to share their content with, and this is a list that can be edited anytime, so if youve had a falling out or if you want to add more people to that list, you can do so anytime. Like we said this is currently a feature that is being tested out, although Instagram does plan to eventually roll it out on a broader scale in the coming months.
