Although Facebook Story is nothing unique, it lets you check what your friends are doing right now. However, sometimes it can be very annoying to get a countless number of notifications regarding your friend’s stories. If so, you can mute someone in Facebook Story so that you do not get any notification when that friend uploads a new story on Facebook.
Inspired by the Instagram Story, Facebook rolled out the Story functionality on their site quite a while back. Every group of friends has at least one person who uploads images, videos, etc. on Facebook very frequently. If you know someone in your friend list, and you want to block him/her from appearing in your notifications, you can do that.
The best thing about this guide is that you do not need to block him/her permanently. Instead, you can mute him/her so that you, as a user, do not get any notification regarding his/her story. It is easy, and no external support is required to get the job done.
