Facebook is launching Memories, a one stop hub for users to reminisce over posts created over the years.
Following the success of On This Day, allowing over 90 million daily users to reflect upon years-old posted content, Facebook has created a compendium of your sentimental history.
In what is being called a Memories Page, users can include “On This Day” moments, shared “Friends Made On This Day,” and seasonal or monthly recaps of memories bundled into a multimedia message.
Building on everything that a personal Page does already, users can more easily peruse their past history instead of relying on prompts and suggestions directly from Facebook’s algorithm.
Listening to the users
Facebook has acknowledged that not all memories are positive, and have designed controls that are easy to use and cognisant of sensitive material.
Users can still access memories through the Memories bookmark found to the left of News Feed, through notifications, and facebook.com/memories.
The new Page however sounds like a simple amalgamation of what already exists, but in a streamlined package. But if it ain’t broke, right?
