There’s times on social media when you need to take a break from a certain feed, and from today Instagram is bringing a mute feature that lets you not see posts from an account without unfollowing it.
It’s similar to the feature which both Facebook and Twitter have implemented over the years, and though it’s being described as a way to ‘personalize your feed’ we all know what it’s about. The mute feature lets you take a break from an account without the ‘unfriendliness’ of unfollowing or unfriending.
To mute an account is quite easy, simply tap the three dot menu on a post, then tap ‘Mute’. You’ll be given the option to mute their posts, or their posts and stories (Don’t worry MadMexAU I’d never mute you).
Instagram says that the Mute feature will be rolling out over the coming weeks. Though if you’re on the Instagram Beta it appears that update is available now through Google Play.
