Facebook snooze button
Facebook is a sad truth: many of us follow people that annoy us pretty frequently. Rather than going through the social pain of un-friending someone. However, Facebook has given the option to stay friends with someone but mute all of their posts in your News Feed. Now Facebook is rolling out a new similar feature that is a little less severe clicking the drop-down menu on a post, you can “snooze” friends, pages or groups for 30 days. It is a good addition; Facebook itself says that many peoples want to prevent seeing posts from folks. However only for a temporary amount of time. Imagine having a friend whose vacation pictures are giving you serious FOMO, or you simply need a break from your crazy uncle’s MAGA rants. (You are absolutely fine to unfollowing him completely, but the choice is now up to you).
Earlier this year Facebook tested out this temporary unfollow option, but now it should be available to all users.
