Facebook wants to help! Facebook is rolling out a new set of features on the mobile app that'll help you "weed out" the amount of updates you see from your exes and vice versa. Instead of blocking or unfriending them, you can now be a sneaky and slowly ween yourself apart online. Discover more the new Facebook breakups features coming to mobile devices soon, below! With one fail swoop and change of your relationship status Facebook will give you the option to magically reduce the number of updates, photos and videos visible. Additionally, this Facebook breakups feature will give you the option of automatically untagging or limiting the visibility of posts and photos with an ex. You can either go through each post one by one to decide whether to untag yourself or get rid of all tags in one clean sweep. The feature will also allow you to limit the updates your ex may see about you. You can choose to hide your posts from that person, so they will only be able to see those posts that you share publicly, with mutual friends or those that you have tagged them in.
After years of requests from users in the community, Facebook has decided to offer options other than "unfriending" and "blocking exes" to make the transition a whole lot easier. Ending a relationship in the age of Facebook breakups will always be complicated, but this new feature may be just the option you never knew you needed to make it a friendlier experience online.
