Facebook Just Made It Easier For You to Avoid Your Stupid, Shitty Ex

Fear not, soon-to-be-single people! Facebook is releasing a new feature that will scrub all former scrubs from your news feed as part of their “ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives.”


Reports BuzzFeed:

The company is testing a number of new prompts that show up after you end a relationship you listed on Facebook, including the option to remove your ex completely from your News Feed.


After removing your stupid, shitty ex from your feed, you’ll also be given the option of removing yourself from theirs—which should help prevent them from keeping tabs on you and everyone you’ve been hooking up with since.

All of this is very good news for those among us who scroll through our news feeds with the fear of a not-so-bright horror movie character who’s tiptoeing down a creaky hallway towards that scary-looking door even though they’re pretty sure the killer’s gonna pop out any second now.
