Instagram plans to introduce a new feature called Favorites


Instagram is undoubtedly one of the most used social networks of the moment. Currently, it has around 700 million users worldwide, which makes it one of the networks that more content pours into the network.

That is why, before this agglomeration of people, often this social network is no longer a way to communicate with our closest friends and becomes a window to the world (which does not have to be precisely bad). But Instagram is developing a tool to alleviate that little problem.

As we read in The Verge, some users are testing a new feature known as Favorites. Thanks to this new tool we will be able to privately share our photos and stories with those users that we have added to a list.


When we publish a new photo or story, we will be given the option to share it publicly or through this Favorites list. When we add a user to this list you will not receive any notification, but you will know that it belongs to that category thanks to a green label placed in our publications. In principle, there will not be a maximum number of people that we can add to this list, although users are expected to limit it to between 10 and 30 members.

From Instagram ensure that all control of this list will have the creative user, as it will be the only one that can add or remove users from this list. In case of expulsion from this list, users will see this section completely empty, and can not request re-entry in any way.

In this way, Instagram aims to establish stronger personal relationships, since many users are dedicated to following hundreds and hundreds of accounts, making direct communication and interaction with our closest friends more complicated.

As already mentioned, the new functionality is currently being tested on a limited number of users, but from the company say that it will eventually reach everyone, since they have been working for more than a year in this novelty. We will be attentive to any eventuality that arises with the aim of informing you as soon as possible.

What do you think of this new feature of Instagram?
