Facebook announces 'snooze button'

Facebook is launching a 'snooze' button for newsfeeds, the feature will allow you to mute content from a person's page or group for 30 days.

The snooze button will be in the top-right drop-down menu on a post. Facebook says anyone who is muted will not be notified.

In addition to the new feature, the social media website announced ads will now appear at the beginning of some videos.

In videos longer than three minutes - they'll pop up midway through. A change is also coming to your news feed rankings. It should make it easier for web creators to reach their audiences.

These updates are expected to take effect sometime next year.
