Facebook Introduces ‘Keyword Snooze’ Feature, So Now Your Friends Can’t Spoil ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Avengers 4’

The website is rolling out a new feature for a small percentage of test users that would allow them to curate their News Feeds based on keywords.
The biggest drawback of the feature for now is that users can only snooze a keyword for 30 days - no more, or no less.
Facebook is testing a new feature that will allow users to block stories containing any keyword from their News Feed.
"If you choose to "snooze" a keyword, you won't see posts in your News Feed containing that exact word or phrase from any person, Page or Group for 30 days", the company said in a blog post on Wednesday. When you select the option, you're given a list of keywords pulled from the text of the post, and can select which ones you want to snooze.

As part of its ongoing efforts to improve the News Feed experience, social media behemoth Facebook is now in the process of testing a new feature that will allow users to disable posts based on the words they contain.
"We hope that with additional options to help tailor your News Feed experience, you'll be able to spend more time focusing on the things that matter", the post added.
However, the option doesn't work on ads. But I wouldn't be too anxious about that. It can only be done proactively, and only appears to affect organic user-generated content and not, ads or paid promotions due to different teams handling those.
