The Buzz: Facebook offers digital distance from ex

Facebook is testing 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.

The optional tool is designed for people who don’t want to take the more extreme measure of blocking an ex-lover from their Facebook network. After changing their relationship status of Facebook, people will also be allowed to remove their names from past posts linking them to a former partner.

Have you ever had a bad break up? Would this have helped?
