Instagram Best Friends have become one of the most popular features on the platform. After several years without adding much to this section, The Meta platform could be about to integrate some changes. This is according to Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, who has taken the opportunity to reveal that the service has begun to test ways to share content with different audiences.
This is an evolution of privacy in the right direction. If the function ends up arriving, you will be able to generate several lists with different audiences that your content will reach, according to your choice. For example, Instagram is currently divided into two: the public Story and the Best Friends Story. However, with this new feature, you could create different ones to share unique content in each one.
For example, you could generate a Best Friends list, a Family List, and a General List. Thus, Only those with whom you have decided to share it will be able to access the content. Nobody else. According to Adam Mosseri, this feature would allow users to “share stories with smaller groups.” This way, you can control your privacy by deciding who can see them.
When does this evolution of Instagram Stories arrive?
Although Adam Mosseri assures that Instagram is working on this new feature, He also warns that it is something experimental. That is, Meta reserves the right to reject its development at any time, so it could end up not reaching our mobile devices in the future.
However, if it is integrated, it would be a positive step for the platform. After all, Instagram sometimes behaves like Big Brother. Have the ability to control who can or cannot see certain types of publications allows us to access better control of our privacy and imagealthough we have already published it on the internet.
While we wait for the arrival of a new generation of Best Friends for Instagram, The company has already thought about its next step to bill. According to him The Wall Street Journal, Meta has already presented a plan to monetize Instagram and Facebook on a large scale, and it is based on classic ads. But that’s not all, and if you want to get rid of them, you will have to pay a monthly subscription.
It is not yet clear when the plan will be implemented. The expected windows point to the end of this year and the middle of next year. That is, by 2024, Instagram and Facebook could become a subscription service. Although today they are thanks to Meta Verified, it seems that the company wants to cover much more ground.
