Facebook to test new feature to help users get over their exes

Facebook announced Thursday that the social network will be testing a feature that will allow users to manage interactions with their exes, according to the Associated Press.

Facebook will begin testing the breakup protection on mobile devices in the U.S. before deciding whether to offer it to all of its 1.5 billion account holders worldwide, according to the AP.

The feature is designed for people who don’t want to risk offending a former husband, wife, girlfriend or boyfriend by unfriending or blocking them on Facebook.

After changing their relationship status on Facebook, people will also be allowed to remove their names from past posts linking them to a former partner.

“This work is part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives,” Facebook product manager Kelly Winters wrote in a blog post.
