There’s relief now for Facebook users who are tired of reading a friend’s posts but don’t want to delete them as a friend.

The social media giant announced a new feature called "snooze," which will allow users to hide a friend's posts for 30 days, KNWA reported.

So a Facebook friend who writes controversial posts, engages in flame wars or posts endless photos of food or items for sale can be hidden. If you do “snooze” someone, Facebook will notify you before the 30-day period ends, providing an opportunity for extend the silence.

The setting can be reversed at any time too, KNWA reported.
