Facebook Is Bringing You A Snooze Button
I hope you weren't one of the folks who lost seeing your friend posts when they changed their algorithm. That was a real pain for some people. And now they are making another change.
Facebook is testing a new feature that will help you block out spoilers or Kardashians or politicians pretty much ANYTHING you want.
It's called KEYWORD SNOOZE, and it blocks stories or posts containing any keyword you choose.
The function will be added to the suite of News Feed controls like See First, Hide and Unfollow. Like this:
Like the snooze button on your alarm clock, it's not permanent. It only blocks things for 30 days. But also like your alarm clock, you can immediately re-Snooze them.
And you can literally Snooze anything from "Avengers: Infinity War" to "Trump" even PUPPIES, but who would want to snooze puppies?
Keyword Snooze went live to some users yesterday. A few million more will get it next week, and if it's successful, they'll start a massive rollout.
