Instagram testing new feature to allow users to mark other users as ‘Favourites’

Facebook-owned social media platform Instagram has been testing a new feature that will allow its users to mark other users as their Favourites.

According to The Verge, Favourites will let users categorize their most important Instagram accounts (friends and creators) as their priorities so that the posts by these marked handles will land “higher” in the user's feed.

Alessandro Paluzzi, a mobile developer, had first shared the update regarding this new feature on his Twitter handle.

As per The Verge, it’s unclear whether this ‘Favourites’ feature will become an official feature at all or if it will change before it’s rolled out more broadly. In the meantime, users just might see this feature in their account menu, just below ‘Close Friends’, a feature that lets you control who you share your Stories with.
