Breakups undoubtedly suck.
And seeing your ex in your Facebook Newsfeed continues to suck for many months after going through a tough breakup. But Facebook wants to ease that pain.
The company announced today a new feature that would soften the blow of any exposure to your ex on the platform.
When a person changes their relationship status on Facebook a series of options will appear.
You can limit what your ex-partner sees (photos, videos and status updates) and what you see from their profile.
"This work is part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives. We hope these tools will help people end relationships on Facebook with greater ease, comfort and sense of control," Facebook said in a blog post.
Sounds great, Facebook. Now can you delete all those couple's Instagram pics for us?
