Facebook has actually been testing the snooze option for a few months, though the company seems to have made some tweaks to the feature since it was first debuted. You could also turn off a particularly chatty Facebook friend whose continuous updates clutter your feed.
Exhausted of those seemingly annoying Facebook friends?
If there's a friend, group, or Page that you're getting too many posts from in your timeline, you can now tap the three dots near the top right of any of their posts, and choose "Snooze [name] for 30 days".
If you're exhausted of putting up with a particular person, group or page for a while, just click the menu in the upper right-hand corner of their latest post and click "Snooze" and you won't see anything from them for 30 days. With it, you can easily mute one or some of your friends' posts who keep on publishing irritating cat videos.
Before the Snooze period ends, Facebook will notify you.
When you set someone to snooze, you won't see their posts appear in your News Feed and you also won't get notifications about their activity - a feature that's particularly handy when it comes to groups.
The person, group or page won't be notified that you've hit the "Snooze" button on them either, and they won't be taken off your friends list.
People often tell us they want more say over what they see in News Feed. In fact, Twitter has it since 2014.
