Facebook now has a Snooze button to mute your annoying friends

Facebook Introduces'Snooze Feature to Mute Frustrating 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.

"By selecting "Snooze" in the top-right drop-down menu of a post, you won't see content from those people, Pages or groups in your News Feed for that time period", Shruthi Muraleedharan, Product Manager at Facebook, wrote in a blog post late.

You might not want to go quite as far as unfriending someone - maybe you're just sick of them posting movie spoilers, or you're exhausted of hearing them go on about their team's latest success - so Facebook has introduced a new Snooze option. People will get a notifications before the Snooze period is about to end. There's also an option to reverse the feature if they regret their ban. If you do not see this now, wait for few more days.

"Seeing too many photos of your uncle's new cat?" It's actually part of Facebook's new push towards improving the News Feed experience, giving people more control over what they see and when they see it.

Omarosa: 'I Was Very Uncomfortable With' Some Things in Trump's White House
Former reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman says reports that she was sacked from the White House are "100 percent false". The advisor to the president also addressed reports that she feuded with Kelly and had unlimited access to the Oval Office.

One of the best things about snooze is that it lets you mute friends without tapping on options like unfollow or unfriend permanently. Is your friend tempting you with endless photos of ramen on her Japan trip?

According to Tech Crunch, Facebook will notify you when the 30 day Snooze period on a user has ended.

With features like Unfollow, Hide, Report and See First, Facebook has consistently been working toward helping people tailor their News Feed experience. Sometimes in awkward situations, we do accept people in our friendslist even when we do not want them there.
