How to mute a source in Flipboard — update

That didn’t take long. Two weeks ago, I posted instructions on how to mute a source on Flipboard because I found the process to be convoluted, and thought I might save other people the frustration I was having.

Now the latest version of Flipboard (3.3.5) makes muting, likes, dislikes and reporting super simple.

Every article in the stream now has a downward-pointing chevron at the top right that you can tap for a list of options. Among them is the ability to mute the site or person the article came from. A nice touch is that Flipboard prompts you with a message asking whether you’re sure you want to go through with it.

You can still go into the Flipboard settings and find a list of muted sources. If you have a change of heart, you can uncheck the source and get it back in your feed.

Access settings by tapping on the person icon at the bottom right of the screen. Then tap on the gear at the top right.
