We recently learned that Facebook was working to deliver self-harming messages to WhatsApp. And now the company wants to use the messaging app functionality in another very popular app, the photography app. Instagram.
In 2018 Mark Zuckerberg's company introduced a feature called "Best Friends" on Instagram that allows users to share stories that are very close to a select group of followers. Now the platform works the same way.
Jane Manchun Wong, security researcher and developer in finding jobs in the testing phase, found that Instagram will include existing work on WhatsApp that allows hide specific stories from specific users.

“Instagram explores the power of hiding certain stories from certain people. Great for special meetings. ”
As we mentioned earlier, WhatsApp Messenger has a similar function for users to know hide your kingdoms from specific contacts. At any rate, we don't know when this item will be launched (or when it will finally be launched) on Instagram.
Late last year, Jane Manchun Wong also revealed that Instagram developers were planning to add something new that would cause a bit of shaking when users pressed "us" on a request for social media photos. So it’s good to know that Facebook continues to try to improve Instagram and WhatsApp.
