Facebook Will Now Let You Mute Your Most Annoying Friends for 30 Days
Your friends won't get a notification about it, either

Facebook is now giving you a way to hit the mute button on your friends with its new “Snooze” feature.

The option lets you temporarily unfollow a person, page or group for 30 days. When that 30 days is up, you’ll get a notification. You can also unmute that person at any time if you decide you want to start seeing their posts again.

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.

Facebook also allows you to stop following posts without leaving a group or unfriend someone for an indefinite amount of time.

“Seeing too many photos of your uncle’s new cat? Is your friend tempting you with endless photos of ramen on her Japan trip? It turns out, you’re not alone. We’ve heard from people that they want more options to determine what they see in News Feed and when they see it,” Facebook said in a release announcing the Snooze feature.

Why the innovation race is getting automated

Today’s business climate is fraught with a justified sense of existential dread. Its source is not new – competition and disruption have existed since the beginning of commerce. But today that anxiety is aggravated by bigger stakes, readily available funding, rapid information flow, and an unprecedented speed of technological advance. Taken together, those factors and others are depriving startup founders and Fortune 500 CEOs alike the respite of a good night’s sleep. But apart from causing anxiety, the present business climate is also forcing companies to operate differently. Large companies seeking to protect their core business are active in the…
