Instagram is giving you the power to mute your friends

We The Pvblic

Instagram has heard the pleas of the pvblic to create a mute button and it’ll be rolling out “over the coming weeks.”

The feature lets you choose to remove someone’s post, or even both their posts and stories from appearing on your Instagram feed. You’ll still be able to view a muted person’s profile and you can unmute them any time you feel like it. And the shadiest part? Instagram won’t be telling that person that they’ve been muted.

It’s a feature which is useful for those who wish to curate their feeds more, or to just stop their relative from posting a photo for the nth time in the past hour, because Lord knows that happens.

Just unfollow them, right? Because that’s easier said than done? Well, my friend, nothing is as easy as it seems these days because it’ll not only come across that person as rude, but there’ll be more to it to them than you think. So as to not hurt one’s feelings, this is the way to go.

But if you prefer the old school way by unfollowing someone, by all means, knock yourself out with that unfollow button. We’re just keeping an eye out for you.
