  • Facebook rolls out 'Snooze' to 'mute' friends

You can mute a friend my selecting the menu option in the right hand corner of their latest post and hitting "Snooze".

'You will be notified before the Snooze period is about to end and the setting can also be reversed at any time.

Netflix responds to backlash over 'creepy' viewing figures tweet
In particular, they called out the 53 people who watched the holiday film every day for the 18 days leading up to December 10. So much so, that Netflix - who are notoriously cagey about their streaming data - chose to call out the superfans.

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. He is also fanatical about football which makes it all the more odd that he should support Stockport County.
