No matter how thoroughly you remove someone from your life, it’s almost impossible to remove them from your social media.
Facebook has just recently announced that they will begin to test new tools on their app to help people manage how they interact with their former partners on Facebook after a relationship has ended. A Facebook user can now see less of a former partner’s name and profile picture around Facebook without having to unfriend or block them.
In addition, your ex will never be notified you’re making these changes, either. That’s a big plus given that it’s a lot easier to assume if you’ve been unfriended or blocked these days, which can make an awkward situation even worse.
It seems like in today’s world every time two people separate they go right to social media to try to erase/delete every moment they had with each other. Now, with Facebook implementing these new tools it will be interesting to see how the users will react.
So if you’re trying to find an excuse to get out of a current relationship, just say you want to give Facebook’s new features a try.
