A New, Not So Tasteful Instagram Feature

Instagram is getting a little petty... Users can now mute accounts that they do not wish to see, but they also do not want to unfollow.

You can now hit the 'Mute' button if you have recently broken up with your significant other, had a fight with one of your friends, or are still mad at one of the celebrities that did not email you back from 5th grade.

It is like they don't exist anymore, without giving them the satisfaction that they got to you enough to unfollow them.
