Here with a special report to let you know that Instagram is currently out here doing God's work: you can now mute people on your Instagram timeline without unfollowing them.
Isn't it always a pleasant surprise when social media is good, or at least does something good?
I have so many people I want to unfollow on Instagram because I hate their posts on my feed but I don't want them to know I hate their posts...y'know? You definitely know.
So, here's how you do it: Tap the little three buttons in the top left corner of a post and select "Mute." You can then choose to just mute the user's posts or both their posts and stories. Easy peasy!
, now when you mute someone you'll still be able to see DMs from them, look at their posts when you go to their profile page, and get a notification if they tag you in anything. Basically, they're just not clogging up your feed anymore!
will still take a couple of weeks to roll out in full, so don't freak out if you can't see it yet; you will one day, very soon, get to silence everyone who posts an engagement pic with an "#ISaidYes💍" while standing in front of a wooded stream wearing matching sweaters.
