Finally a way to keep your friends from spoiling TV shows or to stop reading headlines about certain political situations!  Facebook has launched 'Keyword Snooze', which allows you to mute certain keywords or phrases from the Facebook feeds for 30 days at a time. The roll out follows a similar Snooze button launched last year by Facebook, which mutes updates from certain people, pages or groups. In order to activate the feature, Facebook users need to go to the upper right-hand menu of a post in their newsfeed. Keywords pulled directly from the post can then be muted in the future by choosing "snooze." Muting and blocking features have also been introduced by other social media platforms, including Twitter and Instagram, in order to tackle online bullying and abuse.
