You know how it is that someone you’re not really friends with asks you to follow them on Instagram and you’re too polite to say no, but you also know that the person’s posts will be dead boring (vlog like videos talking about the carrot they had for breakfast), but you’re too polite to say no, so you follow them and you just hate yourself afterwards.

Well, Instagram has listened and now they are rolling out a mute feature.

What this allows you to do is mute a person’s posts therefore they would never show up on your feed, what more, the person never actually knows you’ve done this.

According to a blog post announcing the new feature, Instagram said; “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,

“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.”

The feature will hit the iOS first before becoming mainstream over the next couple of weeks.
