Facebook is all about connecting people, but lets face it, there are some annoying people that you want to avoid sometimes. Some people fill our News Feeds with photos and posts that we just don’t want to see.
Facebook has come up with a solution where we don’t have to permanently unfollowing these people and lets us mute them.
You can mute them for 24 hours, one week or a full month, just use Facebook’s Snooze button. The Snooze button doesn’t just work with friends that you’re connected to either. It also works on Pages and Groups so if you’ve liked a particular brand that just won’t stop posting, you can mute it temporarily.
The Snooze button was spotted on Facebook’s desktop site today in the United States, but Facebook has not confirmed if it has rolled out Snooze widely or if it’s just doing a test right now.
Snoozing a friend, Page or Group is easy. Just click on the drop-down arrow in the top right of a post and you’ll see an option to “Unfollow or Snooze.” You can also permanently unfollow them, if you want. This should be a great feature that will be used quite a lot.
