Good news for my fellow Instagram lovers! You can now MUTE accounts you follow without unfollowing them!!!!!
Facebook and Twitter have had this mute feature which is always relieving when you need a break from seeing someones posts.
All you have to do is tap the three buttons in the top left corner of a post and then select mute. You can then mute that user's post or both their posts and their stories. Super simple!
Oh and you WILL still be able to receive DMs form their and get notifications if they tag you in a post, but their actual posts won't show up on your feed anymore.
