Snoozing people on Facebook

I've had to start snoozing people on facebook. This week one of the local pastors I'm friends with started posting about how this is just a flu and we need to open schools and churches back up. He also is talking about how the media is just hyping this up too big and the stay at home order is unrealistic.

I just cant handle that mental stress. As encouraged as I was that his own church members were countering him, that kind of stupid is not needed right now.

We live in the #1 per capita growing number of cases for any state or county in the world. If that doesn't say "stay at home," I dont know what would.

I had to snooze someone when her political beliefs crossed a line I just couldnít deal with. I ended up unfollowing her.

Do what you need to do to stay mentally healthy.

Iím about ready to snooze my teacher FB page.

I snooze people, too. Not so much the ones who post about COVID 19 or political things (those are the ones I have an easy time just scrolling by), but more of the ones who continually post the "I bet you won't share..." or "Who's brave enough to share..," or "Share if you think (fill in the blank) should be done in schools." Those posts usually come from people who don't use much common sense or critical thinking.

Now that more and more personal stories are being shared, especially the toll it's taking on nurses, doctors, firemen, and policemen how can you deny the necessity of doing whatever is needed to get control of this pandemic? Those who deny the impact should be forced to assist in the front lines. Massachusetts reported that over 160 of their medical workers at Boston Medical Center have now tested positive. That not only affects their coworkers but their families as well. I wonder how many of these people who have a rather casual attitude would volunteer to replace those workers?

I know that some people think you shouldn't end friendships over religion or politics, but when stupid or hateful is included in either of those categories, I've decided to let those people go.

I agree with you on this. I am FB friends with many who have different political beliefs than mine. We usually maintain boundaries and scroll by posts that we donít agree with. However, I unfriended two who started posting some racist comments. I had to draw the line.

I forgot that was an option! I have to do that. I'm friends with a couple people who also think it's "just a flu" It's so frustrating.

Yes. Unfollow people and hide negative comments for my mental health.

Agreed. Up until now, I have managed to snooze or unfollow people, but when it becomes a matter of the health and safety of our first responders, or outright racist, then I unfriend.

I have started hiding posts by people whose political beliefs are in extreme opposition to mine, and the posts are offensive to me. The next step will definitely be snoozing them.

I had to snooze someone who kept posting about every tickle in her throat and every ache and pain thinking it was the virus. And then telling us about the walks she had gone on and the food delivery that she ordered.

I finally unfollowed and snoozed some people on Facebook. I'm also avoiding Twitter as much as possible. As much fun as it once was, it's not worth the added anxiety at the moment.

I must be lucky. I haven't had to snooze people I know although some advertisers have gotten the boot.

My friends on fb are few and are mostly relatives and very old friends who keep me informed of what's going on in their lives. I also have a select few teachers from my old school who keep me informed about their lives. We don't seem to mention school very often, though. They are all retired like me. Very few post political remarks anymore. It's like no one has it in them to argue points that aren't going to result in any change. We'll see what happens later this summer when the political race heats up.

I, too, have had to snooze some people on FB. (One of them being a relative). It is hard for me to understand someone denying that the virus exists - so dangerous considering that others look to him as a guide.

Yesterday I to started limiting my time on Facebook. I am checking it in the am and before I go to bed. My anxiety can't take all the comments right now. I feel somewhat better today already. I am still watching the nightly news but no longer watching the local news again before I go to bed. I am doing my part staying at home as well.

I guess I've been fortunate since I haven't had to snooze anyone for COVID or politics.

I have had to snooze 2 for different reasons:
1. College football - he posted mean memes and I got tired of reading them.

2. Too many recipes - enough to take up my whole newsfeed!


When those happened, I just snoozed them for 30 days and it was enough!

Click on the three dots on the top.right corner of the persons post. It'll bring up a drop down menu in the ohoen app. Then click on "snooze this person." It will then tell you that the person is snoozed for 30 days.
