    To only share Instagram posts with friends, first tap the three blue dots in the bottom right-hand corner.
    We want to make the posts private. What this will do is it will only allow friends or contacts to view posts. Normally, when something is posted on Instagram, it can be seen by anybody, especially if a hashtag is added. The post will be added to the hashtag group where anyone can view it.
