Facebook rolls out 'Snooze' to 'mute' friends

Facebook rolls out 'Snooze' to 'mute' friends

If you're exhausted of seeing selfies, motivational quotes, photos of food, holiday snaps or anything other posts you find annoying, rather than unfriend someone, you can now mute them for a month without them knowing. When the mute period is about to end, you will be notified. The feature permits one to mute a friend, a group or some page on Facebook for a period of thirty days resulting in temporarily avoiding any updates from the muted items on their respective News Feed. But at the same time, it's likely you've been extremely annoyed by the incessant stream of babble that flows from some people. There's also an option to reverse the feature if they regret their ban.

Personally, I think it would be an wonderful roll out in the present scenario as people are actively using the last week's newly launched tool of answering their personal questions and News Feed these days are flooded with the answers as every answer is its own status update post. "We've heard from people that they want more options to determine what they see in News Feed and when they see it", product manager Shruthi Muraleedharan wrote in a blog post. It turns out, you're not alone.

'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'. They're also hoping it'll help "make their experience more positive".

Facebook won't tell people when they've been "Snoozed", and the setting can be reversed at any time. In addition to writing about tech, Jonathan has a passion for fitness and nutrition and has previously written for one the UK's leading watch and horology websites.
