One more way to personalize your Instagram feed - mute annoying accounts without to unfollow them
Instagram released the new feature less than a week ago. The idea behind is to control what you see on your feed. The new feature lets you hide posts in your feed from certain accounts, without unfollowing them.
The new "mute" button will be rolled out to all accounts in the next few weeks. The feature was announced on the Instagram website on Tuesday, May 22, and this new update from your Instagram app will help make your Instagram feed a place you actually want to be while using the app.
Do people know you mute them on Instagram? Nope. They won't know a thing :-)
When you mute an account, you can still see their posts when you go to their account. And you can also get notifications for comments and posts you are tagged in (even when you mute somebody's post).
How to actually MUTE an account?
Now open your Instagram app and try it. If you don't have the new "mute" feature yet, update your app and see if it's rolled out on your account. If you still don't see it, be patient. It's coming soon :-)
As Instagram released on their website: "We introduced changes to improve your browsing experience in feed and make it more fresh. We also heard that you want to understand how feed works, so we updated our Help Center to give you a better sense of how it’s ordered. We’re aiming to make feed the best place to share and connect with the people and interests you care about. Mute will be rolling out over the coming weeks."
Let me know in the comments what do you think about this new feature. Do you think it will make it more pleasant to scroll down and see only posts you want to see on your feed?
I personally believe that this will force business accounts to create a better content so they don't get mute from their followers.
