To avoid annoying friends or groups, the social network presents a new solution to silence them without the need to remove them from your friends list.
It is a button similar to “Stop following”, but less extreme. The new feature, launched today in the United States, allows you to “mute” friends, groups or pages for up to 30 days. You simply have to open the drop-down menu of any publication to see the option.
It is not a secret that Facebook uses an algorithm to show us, according to our activity, the publications that it considers most important, leaving very little space for personalization.
Undoubtedly, the mute button is a new tool that will be very helpful to have a break in the sea of publications that represents the popular social network, especially because it is approaching an era where friendships are often broken: elections.
Remember that in addition to the new button, you can choose the postings of pages or friends you want to appear first in your news feed.
