You Snooze, You…Win!
Ever miss the grand finale to your favorite show, only to have the ending ruined by your best friend’s Facebook status a half an hour later? What about patiently Netflix-ing through Season One of a particular series, only to find out that your favorite protagonist dies in Season Six whilst scrolling through your newsfeed? It’s agonizing, it’s horrible, and it can knock the wind out of your sails. Therefore, to remedy the ungrateful surprise of spoiler alerts, Facebook has come to the rescue.
Recently, Facebook implemented a “snooze” keyword feature that will give people the option to temporarily hide posts that contain certain buzzwords. By implementing the “snooze,” you will not see posts in the feed containing an exact word or phrase from any person, page, or complementary group for 30 days. After that 30-day period has elapsed, you can feel free to click that handy-dandy button once again and reinstate the muted feature. This will alleviate all shock and disbelief when bingeing through your next show or after DVR-ing your prime time go-tos.
Media conglomerates are our friends! In addition to helping shield us from spoilers, they also help us mute unwanted activity. Giving up chocolate for the month and want to hide those deliciously-addictive “Tasty” videos? Go ahead! Want to block assorted political information and commentary from flooding your feed over the course of the next month? Step right up and tap the button in the upper right-hand menu! Just plain tired of seeing some of your friends’ incessant complaints or opinions? Hide them for a limited time!
If someone posts a status or article and you don’t see it, has it really been posted for all to read? Snooze buttons aren’t just for alarm clocks anymore. Don’t fret if you have a scheduling conflict during Monday 8 p.m. ET runs of the Bachelorette. Hit that snooze button and scroll through your feed leisurely, peacefully, and rose-free until you’re ready to settle down with a glass of wine and bucket of popcorn on Tuesday night.
