If you have that specific friend that you are tired of seeing their rampant political postings (or any type of posting for that matter) that goes against your views; yet, you do not want to offend them too much by unfriending them, there are several quick options in Facebook to fix this.
Here is how to do this:
The next time you see a post from this friend, look in the upper right corner of the post and click on the three dots (also called an ellipsis). A dropdown box will appear where you will see the following options:
Hide Posts – see fewer posts like this. (Facebook will attempt to block any further postings such as what you are seeing; BUT, you will still see other postings from this friend).
Snooze XXX for 30 Days – Temporarily stop seeing posts. (This option gives you a break from the friend and you will not see any postings from the friend for 30 days).
Hide All From XXX – Stop seeing posts from this person. (This option is the nuclear option. You will stop seeing the friends posts; BUT, they will still remain a Facebook friend and they will not know any different).
