Facebook has announced that it is testing a new feature that will allow users to avoid having spoilers in their News Feed. The new feature is called Keyword Snooze and it is currently available for selected users.
The new Keyword Snooze button will be available in the upper right-hand menu in News Feed. Users can use it temporarily hide posts by keywords, which are pulled directly from text in that post.
So, for example, you don’t want to see the spoilers of your favourite series or movie, you need to choose to snooze the word. After that, you won’t see posts in your News Feed containing that exact word or phrase from any person, Page or Group for 30 days. However, the company revealed that it is not foolproof. This is why you get different options like See First, Hide, Unfollow, Snooze etc.
Previously, Facebook introduced a dedicated page where users can find all of their status and photo updates that they’ve shared with their friends and family in the past. Called Memories, the new section will be an extension to the Facebook feature “On This Day” that reflected on what exactly you posted a year ago or years prior or the moments you shared with your friends.
Memories will include many subsections which will let you sort out your memories and find the moment you might be looking for from the past. There’s a new “Recap of Memories” which plays a video message of monthly or seasonal memories over the years. “Memories you have missed” shows a few posts from last few weeks that you might have missed out on.
