Facebook is adding the ideal feature for those annoying 'Facebook friends'

You know the one I'm talking about, that person who constantly posts photos of the same thing (a pet, a child, their meals) and clogs up your News Feed day after day.

Do you wish your aunt would stop posting about her new cat?

The site has introduced a new "snooze button" letting you temporarily unfollow a person, page or group for thirty days.

"We've heard from people that they want more options to determine what they see in News Feed and when they see it", noted Facebook product manager Shruthi Muraleedharan, in a blog post.

Facebook will also give you a notification when this 30 days is about to run out, in case you want to snooze them again. You can also choose to end the snooze at any time.

There's never been a civil way to handle that twice-removed aunt or former childhood bestie who can not help themselves from oversharing on Facebook.

Maybe that type of permanent ignorance is what you crave for your bliss, but it's often easy to forget you've muted a person for months when you only meant to mute them while they're releasing status updates for every single play of the World Series. 15, we finally have a way to properly filter our News Feeds - all while being completely invisible to those social media offenders who drive us up the wall.

We all have that one Facebook friend.

Facebook can get a little overwhelming at times, especially in today's era of fake news and hot-topic political takes.

Facebook's move is based on a bunch of internal and external research on how social media affects moods.

Oh, and did we mention that this works for groups and pages as well?
