Facebook is now rolling out a new feature called Snooze to all users after going through a testing period in September. This new nifty tool allows you to mute a friend (or friends), page, or a group for 30 days so you can temporarily mute their updates from your News Feed.
If you’re familiar with the current Unfollow / Hide tool that let you permanently remove a user or page’s updates from your feed without unfriending them, you’ll find that this new Snooze feature is somewhat similar. You’ll now have the option to snooze the account for a month. This is definitely helpful for people that don’t want to randomly see things on their timeline such as random quiz results or random pictures.
Snooze allows you to put a delay on the notifications you receive from friends, pages, or groups. That is, it’s a 30 day snooze. If you want to temporarily halt those notifications, you can choose to use the snooze feature and now just the Unfollow / Hide tool that’s currently available. If you find yourself snoozing a page, friend, or a group often, it’s probably best to just unfriendly or unlike at that point, right?
