What is Facebook Snooze and How to Use it

Facebook Snooze: What is it?

Facebook Snooze feature lets you stop the updates from the specific person or page or group from appearing on your News Feed for 30 days.

As you see, this is a temporary one. After 30 days, the updates will begin to appear on your News Feed as usual.

In this post, we will see the steps to Snooze on Facebook (PC) and Facebook app (Android). Without further ado, let's get started.

Note: if you prefer to stop updates from someone appearing on your News Feed permanently without unfriending them, then you need to Unfollow them.

Facebook Snooze: How to Use it?

Steps to Snooze on PC

  • Go to your News Feed and find the post of the person, page or group that you want to Snooze.
  • Once you find it, click on Menu (three horizontal dots) on the top right corner of the post.
  • Click on "Snooze X for 30 days." The X may be a name of the person, page or group.

That is all. All done.

If your friend has shared the content of another friend, page or group, then you will see more Snooze options which you can use to Snooze them.

In the above image, you can notice that there are two Snooze options. One is the option to Snooze my friend, and another one is an option to Snooze the page whose content my friend is shared.

Now, I can Snooze anyone of them or both.

For instance, I want to Snooze both of them. When I click the option to Snooze my friend, I will be shown with a notification that my friend is Snoozed along with the "Undo" link and the link to Snooze the page too. When I click on the "Snooze X for 30 days" link, the page will be Snoozed. Here X is the name of the page.
