Despite the timing of the announcement, Facebook has been researching well-being and trying to improve the news feed for a long time, a source familiar with the company's thinking said.

Do you think Facebook is damaging social interaction? The feature will notify users when the 30 days are almost up, allowing them to either extend the Snooze or let it expire.

Facebook has added a news feed feature that enables users to hit snooze on friends and acquaintances. "You will be notified before the Snooze period is about to end and the setting can also be reversed at any time". Snooze offers a temporary solution instead of a more permanent one.

Facebook is now rolling out a new feature called Snooze to all users after going through a testing period in September.

Showtime has released the premiere date and first trailer for Homeland season 7 and it appears to offer a thrilling ride. In addition, Carrie will be working to get the incarcerated agents released.

Users can mute people, pages or groups.

"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.

But the mute button is not a new feature. Well, the social media giant is offering an easy way to keep them out of sight and out of mind. 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. Other studies also showed that people only use social media and technology to pass the time. When people consume information passively on their News Feed but do not interact with them, they feel worse.

The new feature which is now rolling out will be available by clicking the option button (an arrow) at the top right of the post, and selecting the new Snooze option.
