We recently learned that Facebook was working to bring self-destruct messages to WhatsApp. And now the company wants to implement a functionality of the messaging app in another of its most popular applications, the photography app. Instagram.
In 2018 Mark Zuckerberg's company introduced a feature called ?Best Friends? on Instagram that allows users to share more intimate stories with a select group of followers. Now the platform works in a similar function.
Jane Manchun Wong, a security researcher and developer expert in discovering functions in the testing phase, discovered that Instagram will include a function already present in WhatsApp that allows hide specific stories from specific users.

?Instagram is testing the ability to hide specific stories from specific people. Very good for special occasions. ?
As previously mentioned, WhatsApp Messenger has a similar function so that users can hide your states from certain contacts. Be that as it may, we do not know when this innovation will be launched (or if it will finally be done) on Instagram.
At the end of last year, Jane Manchun Wong also revealed that the developers of Instagram were planning to incorporate a novelty that would cause a small vibration to occur when users press ?like? on the social media app for photography. So it is good to know that from Facebook they keep trying to improve both Instagram and WhatsApp.
