Are you wondering how to mute a particular page's post without unfollowing it? Facebook's snooze feature enables you to do just that. Once you snooze someone, their posts will be out of your feed for the next 30 days. This article explains how to snooze a particular page, profile or group on Facebook.
If your Facebook feed is often cluttered with unnecessary posts from friends and pages you follow, snoozing them can help. Snoozing prevents you from seeing posts from a given profile, page, or group for up to 30 days. This is an excellent solution since you do not have to unfollow them. Once you snooze a page or group, they won't get notified. You can unsnooze them at any time in case you change your mind. In this article, you will learn how to snooze and unsnooze a given Facebook page, profile, or group. The instructions apply to both web and mobile applications.
Snooze A Facebook Profile, Page, or Group
Follow the guide below to snooze a Facebook profile, page, or group for 30 days. You can follow the steps using the web or mobile application.
Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account.
Step 2: Look for a post from the page or friend you want to snooze. Click on the three dots in the top right corner of the post.
Step 3: Click on “Snooze <name> for 30 days” from the pop-up menu.
Step 4: You will get a pop-up with the message “You won’t see posts from <name> in your feed for 30 days”. If you suddenly change your mind, you can unsnooze the page by clicking the “undo” button.
That’s it! You have successfully snoozed that page or friend. You will not see any of their posts in your feed for the next 30 days.
How To Snooze A Profile From A Shared Post
Occasionally, posts shared by friends or pages from other pages may appear in your feed. Your feed can, therefore, easily get clogged up with posts you don’t care about. Luckily Facebook provides two snoozing options for such posts. The first option is to snooze the friend or page you follow. The second option allows you to snooze the person or page being shared. You can use this option to block all the shared posts from groups and friends you follow. This can be a great choice if you are only interested in posts from friends and pages your directly follow. If you want to mute all posts from groups and profiles you follow, including those originally from them, you should consider the first option.
How To Undo A Snooze
Unsnoozing a page or a friend’s profile is straightforward. To do so, navigate to a friend’s profile or page and look for the Snoozed note appearing at the top-left of the post. Now click on the Undo button to undo the snooze. You can alternatively follow the guide below if you are using a PC.
Step 1: Click on the inverted triangle icon on the top-right corner of the page.
Step 2: Click on “Settings And Privacy” and the “News Feed Preferences.”
Step 3: Click on the Snooze option between the Reconnect and Reaction Preferences.
Step 4: All the profiles, pages, and groups currently snoozed, or those that have been snoozed at least once, will be displayed. The currently snoozed ones have a blue clock icon. Use the search box to find the ones you want to unsnooze.
Step 5: Click on the blue icon to unsnooze the profile, group, or page.
If you are using a mobile application, Android or IOS, you can follow the steps below.
Step 1: Navigate to the snoozed page. Click on the three dots under the cover photo.
Step 2: Click on Snoozed, then End Snooze.
That’s it! Posts from pages, groups, and profiles you have unsnoozed will start showing up in your feed.
Snoozing a page, profile or group prevents their posts from showing up in your feed. This can be useful if the page, group, or profile you follow posts too often, cluttering your feed. After you snooze a page, group, or profile, you will not receive any posts from them for 30 days. Facebook will not send notifications to your friends or groups once you snooze them. If you change your mind, you can unsnooze the group or profile to start receiving their posts in your feed.
