Sometimes, I have to hide my friends’ posts on Facebook as some of my virtual friends create embarrassing situations by writing objectionable or annoying contents or posts. And while I am browsing my time line on Facebook, I have to close my laptop lid or go away somewhere to hide my phone screen from others. Thanks to Facebook, now I can use Facebook Snooze Button to Hide Friend’s Posts without deleting them for 30 days from iPhone and Android.

To use Snooze button, you don’t require anything on your iPhone or Android phone. It’s a built-in feature that temporarily mutes a Facebook friend’s posts. When you hide friend’s post on Facebook time line or news feed, you don’t get to see his/her annoying posts for thirty days. And the best part is that your friend doesn’t know that you have muted his Facebook posts using Snooze button. Basically, this Snooze feature allows you to unfollow a person, page, or group for 30 days.
