    Facebook is one step away from making the memory-wiping technology seen in Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind a reality. And while they’re not exactly erasing our exes from our brains, as was the case in the Jim Carey movie, the new tools they began testing Thursday come pretty close.

    Up until now, avoiding reminders of your exes’ existence on Facebook meant blocking or deleting them entirely. With this new set of tools, users can curate exactly how much of their exes they want on their News Feed. Now, when you change your relationship status on Facebook, you can determine how much you see of your ex, how much your ex sees of you, and how much other people see of posts that include happier times between the two of you.

    Breaking up is hard to do, but on Facebook, it doesn’t have to be.
