How to temporarily hide those baby and wedding photos on Facebook

Facebook has introduced a ‘Snooze’ button which allows users to temporarily hide friends and pages from their newsfeed for a period of 30 days.

Unlike the Unfollow option, the Snooze button is only meant to help filter your news feed on a more temporary basis. For instance, if you’re being flooded with wedding or baby photos, the Snooze option fits in perfectly because you can filter those posts out as situations like that are temporary around the time they occurred.

It even works well for friends who like the post TV show spoilers.

Our only wish was that there would be more time options (e.g. 1 day, 7 days, 2 weeks, etc.). You can manually end the Snooze option at any time.

Just like the Unfollow option, your friend(s) will NOT be notified if they are Snoozed. Once the cycle is close to being over, you’ll receive a notification telling you that it’s coming to an end. At least you’ll be able to determine if you should continue to Snooze or not, assuming that Marge is still flooding her feed with photos from Cancun.

To snooze someone, simply click the three dots to the right of each post and click the Snooze option. The feature is still being rolled out, so even if you don’t see it now, it should pop up on your desktop and mobile apps soon enough.
