SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook is trying to ease the pain of breaking up.
A new feature will allow people who’ve split up with a spouse or partner to turn on an option that spares them the emotional pain of constantly seeing their ex-lover’s posts and pictures in their news feed.
Facebook will begin testing the breakup protection on mobile devices in the US before deciding whether to offer it to all of its 1.5 billion account-holders worldwide.
