Facebook Introduces Snooze Button For Those Annoying Friends

Above Snooze

To use Snooze, simply select it from the top-right drop-down menu of a post. Posts from these snoozed subjects will show up once again after those 30 days have passed, but if you decide you want to keep the silence coming, you can just snooze one of their posts after 30 days like you did before.

The snooze feature will let you mute a person, page, or group for 30 days. You have a connection with hundreds of people on Facebook but honestly can't stand to associate with a lot of them.

While the hide and/or report post options are focused on performing an action over a specific post, the new snooze option is focused on performing an action on the source of the posts, be it on a friend, page or group.

They present both positive and negative research on social media and write about what Facebook is doing to combat the negatives and prioritize the positives. "You will be notified before the Snooze period is about to end and the setting can also be reversed at any time". "It turns out, you're not alone", the company said in a statement.




"As News Feed evolves, we'll continue to provide easy-to-use tools to give you the most personalized experience possible every time you visit Facebook", Muraleedharan wrote.

The new snooze feature will add to Facebook's already existing features to unfriend and unfollow someone, but has an important distinction that Facebook users should love. Facebook's algorithms are sophisticated, but they haven't overtaken us yet.

Do you think Facebook is damaging social interaction? Rather than going through the social pain of un-friending someone, however, Facebook has offered the option to stay friends with someone but mute all of their posts in your News Feed.

Controls for your News Feed aren't new.
