Community muting is a feature that allows you to exclude communities you’re not interested in from showing up in your notifications, Home feed recommendations, and Popular feed. To start, community muting will roll out as a mobile feature. Any communities you mute will be removed from your home and popular feeds in the apps.
If you’d like to stop seeing content from a community for any reason, you can mute the community by using the overflow menu or visiting your user settings.
- To mute a community from your Home or Popular feed tap “…” and select Mute r/[Community name].
- To mute a community from Settings go to your Account Settings and find the Blocking and Permissions section. There you will see the option to Manage muted communities.
- To mute a community from a recommendation tap “...” and select Show fewer posts like this. After selecting your preference of seeing less of This individual post or Posts from this community, you will get the additional option to mute the community.
- To mute a community from a community page select the “...” option then tap Mute.
If you don’t want to entirely mute a community, you can still modify or turn off notifications from particular communities in your Notification Settings. Additionally, if you change your notification preferences for a muted community, by opting into notifications, you will be removing it from your muted community list, and will see the community in your recommendations and feeds again.
Muting can be used to stop seeing the content a community shares, but if the community you’re blocking has also broken Reddit’s rules against harassment, threatening violence, hate, or anything else in our Content Policy, we also ask that you report the rule-breaking content.
We’re starting with a focused launch to learn and design the next set of features. In addition to rolling out on desktop, in future launches, muting will remove communities from all mixed feeds and recommendations.
