Don't want to block someone? Now there might be another way...

Instagram's testing out a feature that gives a user control over who sees their profile by allowing them to remove followers from their feed.

If you have been granted the capability to remove followers, you can go to your follower's list, tap the three dots on the right side of the user's Instagram handle, and tap "Remove".

The new function is less harsh than completely blocking someone, and Instagram won't tell the user that they've been axed from your follower's list.

However, if your page is private, then users will have to request to follow you again – that's where things could get totes awks.
