Facebook has announced the launch of its "Memories" page, where users can see previous Facebook activity on a certain date from years prior, as reported by TechCrunch.
The new page is the permanent home for the "On This Day" feature that was launched in 2015.
In the past, users would receive daily notifications, letting them know that they had “memories to look back on”.
In addition to being able to see previous posts, users can access the "Friends Made That Day" feature, which lists friends added on a certain day in previous years, as well as Facebook-generated “friendversaries” posts and videos that users can share.
Other features include "Memories You May Have Missed" and "Recaps of Memories", which put together monthly recaps into videos or posts for users who do not check Facebook daily.
In case there are certain memories that you would rather not relive, Memories is able to filter or remove specific content.
“We know that memories are deeply personal — and they’re not all positive. We try to listen to feedback and design these features so that they’re thoughtful and offer people the right controls that are easy to access,” wrote Oren Hod, Facebook's product manager. “We work hard to ensure that we treat the content as part of each individual’s personal experience, and are thankful for the input people have shared with us over the past three years.” (sul/wng)
