One of the best things about snooze is that it lets you mute friends without tapping on options like unfollow or unfriend permanently. Most importantly, Facebook will not notify people, Groups, Pages that a user chooses to snooze.

The social giant says that the "snooze" feature has been introduced after feedback from the users as they wanted more options to determine what they see in News Feed and when they see it.

Personally, I think it would be an awesome 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. 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. Is your friend tempting you with endless photos of ramen on her Japan trip? Its 2 billion users worldwide can also hide posts from certain people or prioritize posts from people so that they see them first in their feeds.
