Facebook-owned Instagram has rolled out a new feature that allows users to mute some accounts so that they can continue following them without having to stumble upon their posts repeatedly.

"When you mute an account, you can still see posts on their profile page and get notified about comments or posts you're tagged in. The accounts you mute will not be aware that you've muted them," Instagram said in a blog post on Wednesday.
