New Facebook Memory Recap Stories Announced

Facebook states after rolling out On This Day two years ago, the company learned which memories users most like. Because of this, it’s adding two new ways for users to relive memorable situations and celebrate special times.

Now, users will see more seasonal and monthly memory recaps right in the News Feed; like previous memory recap stories. Also, users can easily share these memories.

Facebook Friendship Celebration

Along with added seasonal and monthly memory recap stories, Facebook is likewise introducing a new way to celebrate friendships. “We’re launching a new way to celebrate the actions that connect you and your community on Facebook. There are two types of moments where you may see these celebratory messages – when you make a notable number of friends on Facebook, and when your friends have liked your posts.” Over the next few months, the platform will roll out more like these.
