CFS on Instagram stands for Close Friends Story. This is a feature on Instagram that allows users to share their Stories (ephemeral photo and video collections that disappear after 24 hours) with a select group of friends, rather than with their entire follower base.
What is Close Friends on Instagram?
Close Friends is a feature on Instagram that allows users to share their Stories with a select group of friends. To use this feature, users must first create a Close Friends list by selecting specific friends from their followers’ list. They can then share their Stories with this group by selecting the Close Friends option when posting a Story.
Stories shared with the Close Friends feature will only be visible to the users on the user’s Close Friends list. This allows users to share more personal and intimate content with a smaller, trusted group of friends, rather than with their entire network of followers.
How to create a Close Friends list on Instagram:
- Open the Instagram app on your device.
- Tap on your profile icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
- Tap on the three horizontal lines in the top right corner of the screen to access your profile options.
- Scroll down and tap on “Close Friends.”
- Tap on “Add to Close Friends” in the top right corner of the screen.
- Search for the friends you want to add to your Close Friends list or select them from your followers list.
- Tap the “+” icon next to each friend’s name to add them to your Close Friends list.
- Tap “Done” in the top right corner of the screen when you are finished adding friends.
Once you have created your Close Friends list, you can share your Stories with this group by selecting the Close Friends option when posting a Story.

In addition to sharing Stories with your Close Friends list, you can also send direct messages to individual users on your Close Friends list by selecting them from the “Close Friends” tab in your direct message inbox.
