    Facebook prides itself on its effectiveness in connecting people and bringing them together. But what happens when two people decide they’re better off apart?

    Today, the social network announced on its blog that it began testing out new tools to help people survive a breakup. U.S. mobile users will now see prompts to try these tools when they change their profile’s relationship status back to single. The option to “Take a Break” include seeing less updates and photos from a former partner without having to unfriend or hide them, and to limit what updates that person can see from the user as well. Newly single people will also have the option to customize who can see their previous posts and the ability to untag themselves from statuses and pictures.
