"Mute" refers to a feature that allows users to hide or silence posts, updates, or notifications from specific accounts or keywords without unfollowing or blocking them. For example, you can mute someone’s Stories on Instagram and you will no longer see their Stories on your homepage, but you will still continue to follow that person.
How does muting someone work on social media?
When you mute someone, their content will no longer appear on your feed, and you won't receive notifications for their posts or activities. Muting is a way to personalize and curate your social media experience, enabling you to control the content you see without severing the connection with that person or account. It is useful for managing your feed, reducing unwanted or excessive content, or temporarily silencing accounts that may be overwhelming or less relevant to your interests.
