You Will Soon Be Able to "Snooze" that Oversharing Facebook Friend

You Will Soon Be Able to

Despite the timing of the announcement, Facebook has been researching well-being and trying to improve the news feed for a long time, a source familiar with the company's thinking said. Antonio Garcia-Martinez, a former Facebook product manager, said in May that the company is "lying through their teeth" about the power of their ad targeting tools. With Snooze, you don't have to unfollow or unfriend permanently, rather just stop seeing someone's posts for a short period of time.

Facebook is introducing a "Snooze" button - allowing users to mute people, pages and groups they do not want to see in their news feed for 30 days. You can also reverse it anytime. A sexual assault survivor may benefit from temporarily snoozing posts from news organizations they follow as potentially triggering sexual assault coverage continues to dominate the news cycle.

In case you change your mind about seeing their posts again, Facebook will notify you when the Snooze period is coming to an end.

Also works with Pages and groups. Once a user snoozes one of these people or groups on the site they won't see anything from that those people or groups for a full 30 days.

Facebook's Shruthi Muraleedharan writes, "One of our core News Feed values is giving people more control".

But Facebook stated that it had become a socially conscious social network in recent years. When people consume information passively on their News Feed but do not interact with them, they feel worse.

It happens to the best of us. The reason for it is not clear.

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.
