This long-awaited feature will finally allow you to hide specific stories from select users in your follower list. In short, this means whenever you post a story, you will be able to filter out specific followers which you want to hide your story from.
Previously, you will need to rely on the “close friends” feature to determine who will be able to see all your stories. Obviously, the short-coming of this feature is the lack of ability to customize your audience of specific stories.
As of now, this feature is said to be under the public testing phase so certain Instagram users may already have this feature within their account. Therefore, we will probably need to wait for a couple of months more before this feature becomes a reality.
So, what are your thoughts on this feature? Do you find it useful for yourself?
