Facebook rolls out tool to ease distress of breakups

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Breaking up on Facebook just got a little easier.

The social networking site rolled out some new tools Thursday to help you avoid your former flame.

When you change your relationship status, Facebook will help you manage how much you interact with your ex.

You can now use a tool to make sure you see less of your ex's name and their profile picture without blocking or unfriending them.

You also have the ability to edit and untag yourself from past posts and photos that include your ex.

Facebook says they hope these new tools will help end relationships with greater ease, comfort, and sense of control.
