Instagram's Favorites will let you share with a specific group of people, currently in testing

Instagram's pace of new feature rollouts isn't showing any signs of slowing down. The Facebook-owned company is now testing a new function that lets you share with only a specific group of people. It is, rather unsurprisingly, called Favorites.
This is basically a 'friend list'. But Instagram wants to succeed in making this a thing, where its parent or even Twitter have mostly failed. Instagram will only have one friend list - Favorites. And it is private. That should keep things simple.

If you get this feature, you can choose who to share with, regardless of whether you're composing a regular post or a story post - publicly or your favorites. When you pick "favorites", only the people on that list will see that post, which will be denoted by a green badge. Your profile will also receive a new favorites tab (signified by a star). Here you will see all of the non-ephemeral posts you've ever shared with your favorites.
You can add anyone to favorites, and there's no limit to how many accounts are on that list. No one gets notified when you add or remove them from the list. They will only know they're your favorite through that green badge showing up at the top of those posts that are shared with favorites only. After you remove someone from the list, they lose access to all of your private posts of course.

The Rock teams up with Apple for a funny Siri commercialTwas a sunny day, everyone minding their own business until Dwayne Johnson - The Rock released a poster for a movie, co-starring Apple’s Siri. Later he clarified it’s actually “a crazy fun commercial”.

The video starts with Johnson nonchalantly cutting a Bonzai tree and trying to record a catch phrase. Then he asks Siri for his schedule and goes on an adventure. The Rock asks Siri for his Lifegoals list and then to call him a Lyft ride. He switches seats with the driver as the video references the stunts Johnson performed in the latest Fast and Furious movies. Siri also brings up the temperature in Rome, and next thing you see is the actor hijacking a plane to the Italian capital.
While hanging from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and painting, The Rock asks Siri to read the last email. Later he shows his fashion line and texts through the voice assistant. The whole 3 minutes 45 seconds is filled with Siri responding to every …
