Ever since the dawn of Facebook there have been those people that make you regret signing up to the site in the first place.


Have you ever had one of those friends that treats Facebook as the journal to their tumultuous relationship or the new parent that has decided to broadcast an online baby album?


In an ideal world we could just click the ‘Unfriend’ button and move on with life but in this day and age, hitting that button is akin to a slap across the face.


If you’re one of those people that aren’t concerned about ruffling some feathers then Unfriend away! But for the rest of us that don’t want to cause a scene, or make their dislike obvious, we’re forced to endure.


But do we?


Facebook is currently working on a Facebook ‘Snooze’ button that will allow users to put the offending Facebook friend on a temporary time out for 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days. The best part is that your Snooze remains anonymous, so no one will now you’re annoyed with them!


This update is currently only being tested in the US but will hopefully will roll out internationally in the coming months.


Don’t suffer through another ‘Baby’s First Bath’ photo again and just hit Snooze.
