The Private Audience selector gives you the control to decide who can see your status updates. You can specify the targeted audience for each update, and the privacy setting will remain in effect for subsequent posts.
Here’s how you can use it-
  • To post a new status for a selected audience, simply navigate to the status section and tap the floating action button on the bottom right.
  • After selecting content for the post, a new floating button will appear on the bottom left.
  • Now, choose between the available options of ‘My Contacts,’ ‘My Contacts Except,’ and ‘Only Share With’ on the pop-up window that appears.
