Facebook is one of the popular social media apps that contain a lot of features that help the user stay connected with the world. Users can write and share something like a post and can also share posts from different pages that they are following.
Sometimes it gets really annoying when you start seeing irrelevant or hate content from the same person repeatedly. To unfriend someone from real life on Facebook is considered rude and they might not feel good about it. The only way to stop seeing such content is by unfollowing them or snoozing their posts for 30 days.
Facebook offers the user to unfollow a user without having to unfriend them. You can also snooze someone’s posts for 30 days, after that you’ll again start seeing their posts on your timeline. If their posts still annoy you, you can unfollow them from their account. Keep in mind both these options can be reversed and the other user won’t know about this.
