Facebook is undoubtedly the best social networking site out there, and almost everyone now uses it. If you are an active Facebook user and have thousands of followers or friends in your account, your feed is likely to be filled with posts in the form of text, photos, or videos.

While scrolling through your Facebook feed, you may find posts you don’t like or don’t want to see. You may even find spam posts on your Facebook feed shared by your friend or relative. Since you can’t unfriend your close ones, muting them could be the best option.

When you mute someone on Facebook, their post will no longer appear in your News feed, but you can still open their profile and check their posts. Facebook allows you to snooze a person’s post for 30 days or unfollow all their posts.
