So I’ve hit the next step of my breakup.. the dreaded Facebook split. But this time around, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by Facebooks awesome new options!!!!!
For me, (And I’m sure many others,) making the step of changing your Facebook status can cause a lot of hurt and awkwardness… this made it a little easier, as your ex isn’t notified that you’re relationship status changed or that you have unfollowed them. It kind of also feels like Facebook is on your side which is nice. It essentially means you don’t have to be worried about seeing their posts or photos they are tagged in etc until you choose to be ready for that again. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that it can also temporarily hide the photos that you and your ex were previously tagged in. Nice to be able to see the memories when you choose to and not be somewhat forced to see painful things from the past in your feed….
These features were a life saver during my last break up! In the end my ex unfriended me because he decided it was what he needed to do and I completely agreed, but when I removed the relationship I was able to hide any posts I didn’t want to see.
These features are fantastic! I’ve got a friend right now who can totally tell their ex is seeing someone else based on their facebook activity. It was driving her crazy seeing him tagging her in all these memes when they were just crushing on each other, and then when they started dating the tagging got really gooey and gross haha! She’s taken all those steps to limit his activity popping up on her feed, and is way happier now!
Wow these features are amazing!! Super hand for me because photos and memories of my ex keep showing up and I don’t really want to waste my time going through and deleting them all individually! Thank you :heart:
