Facebook mentioned that since this community has become a place for sharing life’s important moments, which for many people include their romantic relationships.

Therefore, when a relationship ends, we’ve heard from people that they sometimes have questions about the options available to them on Facebook.

When people change their relationship status to indicate they are no longer in a relationship, they will be prompted to try these tools.The tools give people the option to quickly and easily

One of the prominent features is of seeing less of a former partner’s name and profile picture around Facebook without having to unfriend or block them. Their posts won’t show up in News Feed and their name won’t be suggested when people write a new message or tag friends in photos.

Similarly, this toll powers person growing through breakup to limit the photos, videos or status updates that a former partner will see. Edit who can see their past posts with a former partner and untag themselves from posts with that person.


Facebook mentioned that “We’re starting to test these tools in the US on mobile, and we’ll make changes and roll them out further based on people’s feedback. All of these tools are optional, and people will be able to access them in the help center anytime”.

This work is part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives.
