No relationship is perfect. Even the people we love can trigger something in us—especially if they post the same stuff over and over again. No matter how cute their baby is, how Instagrammable lunch always looks, or how fashionable an OOTD can get, sometimes, we just need a break. 

Instagram is helping us keep our sanities in check and preserving our friendships with their newest feature: the Mute button. 


This tool is meant to give us more control over what we see on our feeds—without hurting other people's feelings. Those we put on mute will never know we've done it, and it's not permanent. The feature applies to both posts and stories.
