Facebook has launched Memories — a single place on the social network to reflect on the moments that one have shared with family and friends, including posts and photos, friends you have made, and major life events.
In a bid to make the platform more engaging and ensure that all the memories are bundled in one place to make it easy to find, the company has unveiled 'Memories.'
Facebook says every day more than 90 million people use 'On This Day' to reminisce about moments they’ve shared on Facebook, and research suggests this kind of reflection can have a positive impact on people’s mood and overall well-being.
The Memories page will include several sections:
On This Day: The content that you know and love will still be available in this section, showing your past posts and major life events from this date.
Friends Made On This Day: This section will include a list of friends you made on this date in the past, including special videos or collages that celebrate your friendversaries.
Recaps of Memories: This section will feature seasonal or monthly recaps of memories that have been bundled into a message or short video.
Memories You May Have Missed: If you haven’t checked your memories lately, this section will show you the posts that you might have missed from the past week.
One can still access their memories through the Memories bookmark either to the left of your News Feed on your computer or in the “more” tab on the bottom right of your mobile app. You can also access Memories through notifications, through messages that you may see in your News Feed, and by visiting facebook.com/memories.
