The Snooze function on Facebook silences other users, pages or groups from your news feed for 30 days. The people, pages, and groups you snooze will not be notified. This means you can avoid awkward situations on Facebook if you choose to mute someone.
As if ordering food online wasn't already quick and easy enough, Facebook recently added its own feature that lets you order food without even having to leave the app. It isn’t really its own feature, but rather a partnership with existing delivery services like Grubhub, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, and EatStreet to name a few, as well as individual chains like Jack in the Box, Five Guys, Papa John’s and Panera. According to the social media giant, this will make ordering food easier because you won’t have to search multiple services to find the restaurant you want.
"Stories" became an instant success when Snapchat introduced the feature in late 2013, so much so that Facebook-owned Instagram basically cloned it, called it the same thing and also found enormous success. Facebook's Messenger and WhatsApp added similar features and earlier this year Facebook itself added its own novelly named "Stories" feature. Unlike its predecessors though, Facebook's version has been a dismal failure so far.
The Graphics Interchange Format, aka GIF, celebrated its 30th anniversary this week and Facebook took note. The social media giant announced that it would honor the format by sharing some details of the GIF's history on Messenger, making GIFs available in comments for everybody in the main Facebook app and throwing a "GIF party" by introducing a bunch of new GIFs featuring popular internet personalities.
Facebook has unsuccessfully tried to copy Snapchat several times by launching a few failed apps, such as Poke and Slingshot, and today Mark Zuckerberg and team are at it again. This time instead of launching a separate app to copy Snapchat, the social media giant has just added a Snapchat-like feature to its Messenger app.
