instagram adds a mute button so you can finally silence those feed-hungry friends

instagram is rolling out a mute button allowing you to remove other users from your feed without unfollowing them. much like facebook and twitter who already have similar features, the addition permits greater control over the curation of what you see. the addition comes at a time when instagram co-founder kevin systrom has just recently confirmed rumors and speculation that IG is ‘jumping into the time well spent movement’.

whilst muting an account removes the user from your feed, you can still see posts on their profile page and get notified about comments or posts you’re tagged in. of course, the accounts you mute will not be aware that you’ve muted them, saving your sanity but also your friendships, and you can always unmute them when you want.
