Instagram Announces New “Mute” Feature!

Instagram announces it’s new “Mute” feature! Set to launch within the next few weeks, the new option gives users more control over which posts and stories show up in their feeds.  The new “Mute” feature allows users to “turn off” either the posts or posts and stories of people from appearing in their feed without having to unfollow them. So, if by chance, you find yourself missing all those ADORABLE mug shots of Mr. Puddles, the 16 year old, toothless, one eyed pug, just head on over to his profile page to catch up on his latest adventures!

To mute poor old Mr. Puddles, simply click on the three dots on the top corner of the post and select “Mute”. Instagram then gives you the option to Mute Posts, Stories or  Posts and Stories.  You can always unmute an account to get their posts back in your feed.

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.

It gets better! Users won’t be alerted they’ve been muted, so Mr. Puddles adoring mommy will still love you! Bravo Instagram!
