Unfollowing someone on Instagram is riddled with all sorts of politics and the possibility of starting a feud. Don't want to see a picture of your cousin's Unicorn Frappuccino, accompanied by a 300-word caption about the importance of following your dreams? Well, you no longer have to put up with the worst of your feed without unfollowing someone. Instagram has finally introduced an option to mute all of the inane and undeniably annoying people clogging up your Insta-experience.
To mute someone, just go to the person's account whom you'd like to mute, and tap the three dots on the top, right hand side of their profile. Among all the options, which include reporting and blocking the account, you'll see the new mute button. In the menu, you'll be given the option to "mute posts," "mute story" or "mute posts and story."
