Facebook’s New "Memories" Page Highlights Engaging Posts from Years Past

Facebook launches Memories a single place where you can find moments shared in the past

Facebook launches Memories a single place where you can find moments shared in the past

It's probably no secret by now how much Facebook has on you, with or without your knowledge. That's pretty much what the "On This Day" feature was made for.

Memories is a brand new feature that's now available to Facebook users on Android and iOS devices, which will allow them to browse all the moments they previously shared with family and friends.

"Every day more than 90 million people use "On This Day" to reminisce about these moments they have shared on Facebook", said Oren Hod, Product Manager at Facebook, in a blog post on Monday.

The Memories page may include any or all of the following sections, depending on the kinds of updates you share on Facebook. It will have a section for what your friends also did or posted on the same day. As TechCrunch observed, this is more about encouraging you to post quality material than the amount of time you spend with its content. You'll also be able to see "friendversaries" - an otherwise painful way to say when you and one of your friends connected on Facebook - seasonal and monthly recaps of memories wrapped up nicely in slideshows or videos, and any memory that you might have missed that Facebook thinks you should be aware of.

Standalone VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive do their job brilliantly but both come at a premium.

If you want to check out your Facebook memories, the new section can be accessed through the mobile app or the Facebook website.
