Facebook Snooze lands in time to avoid Star Wars spoilers

Facebook has finally added the feature we've all been waiting for

News Feed FYI: Introducing Snooze to Give You More Control Of Your News Feed | Facebook Newsroom

Facebook already allows you to unfollow someone while staying friends, if their posts are starting to clog up your feed.

Facebook on Friday launched Snooze , a way to temporarily unfollow a person, page or group for 30 days.

In a post on the Facebook Newsroom blog the company wrote: "We've heard from people that they want more options to determine what they see in News Feed and when they see it".

The people, pages and groups you hit the snooze button on won't know, and Facebook will notify you when you snooze is about to expire. You will receive a notification when a Snooze cycle comes to an end though, and it can be reversed at any time if you change your mind. In that case, the social media site has a new feature, just for you, called "Snooze". If you don't have the option yet, it should appear in the next few weeks as the feature rolls out. With it, you can easily mute one or some of your friends' posts who keep on publishing irritating cat videos.


Chamath Palihapitiya, who left his role as VP for user growth in 2011, said: The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that we have created are destroying how society works.

Facebook is well aware of the studies showing it can have a negative effect on well-being and has been taking steps to make itself better for the mental health of its users. Other studies also showed that people only use social media and technology to pass the time.

Sometimes there are people on your Facebook feed you just don't want to see for a while.

You probably won't have noticed it yet but you can now find the button in the top-right drop-down menu of every post.
