"We hope that these utilities will help people to end their relationships also in the social network. And to do so with greater ease, comfort and sense of control," says Kelly Winters, product manager for Facebook in a statement. The options appear when the break is made official in the social network, according to the creators, "it is also a way for users to protect themselves from their former partners in the online world."
