Do you know someone who posts too much on Instagram? 

Maybe, a little bit too much and you don’t really want to see their posts or stories every time you refresh your feed.

Or maybe someone who is continuously texting or calling you on IG yet you don’t want to receive the notifications?

Don’t worry – it’s not just you.

Every single person using Instagram has someone on their feed who shares too many posts and stories and someone who’s continuously texting them.

You can always unfollow or block such people. But if you know the person in real life and want to avoid the awkwardness, chances are that you are stopping yourself from hitting that “Unfollow” or “Block” button. 

But wait – what if I told you that you don’t need to unfollow or block someone to stop seeing their posts or stories every time you refresh your feed? Or stop receiving their message or call notifications?

Luckily, IG allows users to mute someone’s posts, stories, messages, call notifications without even notifying the other person.  

So – that’s good news.

And if you have been annoyed with someone’s constant posting and messaging and would give anything to stop that, allow me to help you out.
