Want to take a break from someone on Facebook? Well, this week, Facebook is launching a new feature that gives you the option to unfollow a person, Page, or group, temporarily.
In a bid to give its users more control over what they see on their News Feed, Facebook is launching a new Snooze feature that gives you the ability to temporarily unfollow a person, Page, or group, on the platform for 30 days.
If there is one specific post that annoyed you, or caused you to grow tired of a specific friend, Page, or group, simply tap or click on the top-right drop-down menu above it and select Snooze.
This way, you won’t see any content from them for the next 30 days.
This new feature is suited perfectly for when you don’t want to unfollow or unfriend someone permanently, but simply want to take a break. Snooze will give you the ability to do this. Of course, the people, Pages, and groups, you snooze will not be notified, but you will be notified just before your Snooze period is about to end. You can simply reverse the snooze if you feel it’s been enough time.
Snooze is just one of the ways in which users can control their News Feed content. It joins other features like Unfollow, Hide, Report, and See First Controls that help you customise your News Feed experience.
Facebook has been testing this feature for the past few months, and now its first iteration is live.
