Excerpt from this article, the story appears partway through the article, so scroll-down for more:

Love in the modern era comes with its own trials and tribulations, but some social media wants to make things better. That’s why Facebook announced plans to make it easier to forget your ex after a break-up. Officially, the company says that it is just “testing [mobile] tools to help people manage how they interact with their former partners on Facebook after a relationship has ended,” but we all know that it’s really there to help you pretend your ex never existed.

Unsurprisingly, such a move was catnip to the Internet at large, prompting many reports, too few of which acknowledged that Facebook is supposed to help with ex-stalking, not make it harder.

The people didn’t seem too convinced, however.
