If you're tired of annoying baby videos or cat photos on Instagram, you'll either have to disband them or even block them altogether. Now you do not have to completely break down the links to them – you can just mute them instead, a feature that Instagram's parent Facebook has been allowing on their platform for some time.
Instagram previously had a way to mute stories from users and tracked hashtags, but that was only true for stories you would see in the top of your feed. This new mute option hides all normal photo and video posts that clog your feed, but does not give the user a clue that you've muted them, whereas it would be pretty easy for them if they did not see or block them anymore.
When you mute user accounts, you can still go to their profile page to see all the photos and videos they've posted, and you'll still receive notifications when they're tagged in one of their posts or in the comments on one of their posts. You can also mute only posts or posts and stories.
