Facebook is working on hiding your posts from an ex after a breakup

Most of us have been there before. You break up with your girlfriend or boyfriend, and maybe choose to unfriend or even block them on the service, but traces of your relationship are still all over the place on your Timeline, for everyone to see. So, what do you do? Do you block them outright, which will remove all their posts and also hurt their feelings?

So, Facebook is currently testing features that will let people trim up their status updates, as well as limit just how much exposure that ex gets on your own news feed as they continue to interact with their own friends and family.

Specifically, with the tools, users will be able to see less of their ex’s status updates without having to outright block them, and the ex’s name won’t be suggested on random posts or even show up when another friend likes their stuff.

On top of that, a user can use the tools to limit the number of news feed posts, photos, videos, or other updates. Users can even untag themselves from photos taken with that certain person, and even edit who can see those past posts or photos.

What do you think of the new feature?
