Facebook might be planning to transfer some of Instagram’s functions to Messenger, namely the “Close Friends” feature. 
The function gives users the option to share a specific piece of content to a limited group of followers. According to the Instagram team. the feature is meant for sharing the very personal moments and ideas.
Recently the renowned tester Jane Manchun Wong uncovered a similar function in Messenger. It is currently called “Favorites”  and will most likely let users share message and media to a select group of contacts.The company’s representative has confirmed, that Wong’s discovery is actually a work-in-progress, but it does not necessarily represent the final product. 
“Favorites” seems to be a part of general Facebook’s effort to encourage micro-sharing. This way the platform hopes to tackle the users displeasure with over-posting and being disoriented with too much content.
