Facebook has officially rolled out a new function to help people mute certain people, pages or group on their timeline. The ‘Snooze’ function gives users the power to mute selected people for a set number of days.
The ‘Snooze’ button gives users a 30-day reprieve from seeing posts for users they have muted. This is perfect for those who wants to not see any content from a particular person, page or group they are linked to, but loathe to unfriend or leave the group for whatever reason.
Facebook is rolling out the feature gradually, and on mobile first. At the end of the 30-day period, Facebook will ask you again if you still want to mute the person. The Snooze mode can be undone at any time, and the people, Pages, and groups you snooze will not be notified of your action.
If you find yourself being bombarded by unwanted posts, or just want to clean up your timeline for the month – Snooze can be a powerful tool for you.
