Facebook is a social media platform that many share their personal life on including life moments such as relationships, which can be hard when one is in the midst of getting over an ex. To help users cope during times of breakups, Facebook is added a series of new tools and functions to edit the types of content appearing on the feed to limit a user's view of their ex's posts. This ideal for anyone wanting to stay on social media, but needing a break from the other person.

Relationships ending is never easy and with the accessibility social media provides, it's very easy to still keep up with one's ex's day-to-day activities. To help users cope, Facebook is offering the 'Take a Break' privacy setting for such an instance allowing users to edit the content they see. These include posts from the opposite person can be removed from one's feed and limiting the visibility of status updates.
