Facebook Snooze lands in time to avoid Star Wars spoilers

16 December 2017

A new feature being rolled out by Facebook could help with that.

You might not have access to the Snooze function immediately; Facebook is rolling it out this week. You can snooze someone for 30 days at a time, which is an interesting change from Facebook's test, which also let you set someone to snooze for 24 hours or seven days.

Facebook is one of those places where sometimes we feel bad for unfriending people, even if their posts annoy us.

"With Snooze, you don't have to unfollow or unfriend permanently, rather just stop seeing someone's posts for a short period of time", Facebook Product Manager Shruthi Muraleedharan said in a blog post. "Snoozing" can be reversed at any time, as well as restarted. Snooze offers a temporary solution instead of a more permanent one. In that case, the social media site has a new feature, just for you, called "Snooze".

Additionally, it seems that Facebook was originally going to allow users to snooze people, Pages, or Groups for a day, a week, or a month.

Chamath Palihapitiya, who left his role as VP for user growth in 2011, said: The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that we have created are destroying how society works. However, Facebook researchers are now thinking about the issue and wondering whether or not the time that users spend on Facebook is right for them. "It is eroding the core foundations of how people behave by and between each other".
