In the event you are not willing to make your story visible to all your followers, Instagram provides you with the Close Friends feature, through which you can put together a list of those who will be allowed to view your Stories.

How to share your Instagram stories only with close friends

To share an Instagram Story to just a select group of friends, you first need to create a Close Friends list, to which you can add the followers who will be allowed to see a story which you are not willing to make public.

5. Choose the "Get Started" option and then tap on "Create List".

6. Choose the "Add" option and search for the friends you want to add to the list by selecting the "+" button in the upper-right corner of the screen.

7. You can remove names from your list by tapping the "Remove" button.

8. Once you have put your list together, choose the "Done" option in the upper-right corner.
