On Instagram you have the option to mute someone’s posts or stories from showing up on your feed. Muting comes in handy when you don’t want to unfollow someone, but also don’t want to see their content. Instagram won’t let them know you muted them. Muting is different from unfollowing or blocking people. You will still continue following them and seeing each other’s content, only that their content won’t appear on your feed. If in future you change your mind and you want their content to appear on your feed, you have the option of unmuting them.
