Instagram has introduced a way to control bothersome accounts in your feed without unfollowing them and making them angry.
The new “mute” feature lets you hide posts made to your feed from selected accounts.
“When you mute an account, you can still see posts on their profile page and get notified about comments or posts you’re tagged in,” Instagram noted in a post at its Info Center. “The accounts you mute will not be aware that you’ve muted them. You can always unmute an account to get their posts back in your feed.”
To mute an account, tap the “…” menu in the corner of the post. From there, you can choose whether to mute posts, or mute posts and stories from an account. You can also mute posts and stories by pressing and holding on a story in your tray, or from a profile.
