Instagram may well have become the social media platform of choice for many people - but it still has a few annoying features, nevertheless.
One of them is the fact that if your account is public, it's impossible to control who sees your feed and who doesn't; even 'blocking' someone is meaningless and easy to get around.
While 'private' users have the ability to remove followers from their list, up until now that feature has not been available to 'public' uses, but Instagram are trialing users' ability to manually remove followers from their list, as they confirmed to The Verge.
Instagram now lets you manually remove followers!?!

As above, the person you remove from your list will not be notified that you've removed them.
Basically, it means that you'll have some degree of choice over who sees your photos without having to make your account private - and while offering a get-out clause, if things get really awkward.
