Facebook released the year in review feature for 2015 which basically allows you to take a look at your photos that had the highest engagement. Last year’s iteration was reported to have a lot of issues, in particular the algorithm used to combine the bad memories with the good ones and people aired their comments about this on social media.
In this year’s iteration however, they have fixed all that by introducing a film strip format that features none of the bad memories as reported by users last year. There is an edit button so that you can select the photos that you want to appear in the list. A Facebook spokesperson explained about the new change to Mashable which included filters to prevent last year’s gaffe:
We heard feedback last year that we need to do more to select the photos that are most enjoyable to people and make it easier for them to edit the photos they see and share in their Year in Reviw. So we’ve applied a unique set of filters to your Year in Review to reduce the chance we’ll show you a photo you don’t want to see…
Thanks to this new change, you can pick the top ten photos that you desire and easily share them to your friends to see by hitting the share button at the top or bottom of the page. However, I would have liked the year in review to feature other aspects of your activity on Facebook like the top status updates or notes to make it a bit more comprehensive.
