Private stories on Snapchat are the best way for you to easily share content with a select group of people on the app — here’s how to make one of your own.

Although it was initially released back in 2011, multimedia instant messaging app Snapchat continues to be one of the most popular apps out there, making it easy for users to connect with friends and fans across the world.

The app originally focused on private messaging, but they went on to add a ‘Stories’ feature which allows users to post pictures and videos to their profile that disappear after 24 hours.

However, you may not always want to share a story with everyone on your contact list, and this is where private stories are ideal, as they allow you to share your posts with a select group of people.

Here’s how to make one.
