New Facebook Feature Lets You See Posts, Photos from Same Date in Previous Years
Facebook is rolling out what is basically its own version of TimeHop.
The social media network just unveiled a cool new feature called On This Day, and it's simple: It just shows you your posts and photos from the same date in previous years. You know, just like TimeHop.
You can check it out by going to facebook.com/onthisday, but Facebook still hasn't rolled it out to all it users yet. So, you might not yet have access.
Remember back when Facebook rolled out a Year in Review feature, and some people were pretty upset at them for including photos of past relationships and even friends who died?
Facebook learned from that mistake, I guess.
So, they've created a special algorithm for On This Day that filters out posts and photos that might show you things you don't necessarily want to be reminded of.
