Facebook is a leading social media platform. It has millions of active users, and it has millions of active users. With the introduction of Facebook, people have been able to close the distance between their loved ones and meet other new people. Facebook has contributed to building communities of people with shared interests and has also given them the ability to share their interests and hobbies with the world. You cannot separate social media from Facebook.
With all that socializing going on, there has to be a feature that helps us keep track of all the memories we create on Facebook. Suppose we want to be able to see the Facebook Memories of the day. Thankfully, Facebook has already introduced this option in its application. We can now go back and watch all our Facebook Memories in video format or a photo collage. It is a fantastic feature that will let us see our memories of the day and relish the moments again. Let us look at more information on this application’s memories of the day option.
Where can we see the Facebook Memories of the day?
We can access the memory feature by going to the explore option and clicking on ‘see more’ once that option drops down, you will see a portal named memories. Through this, you can access any memory you have on Facebook since the day you opened your account on that application.
What are the different types of Facebook Memories we can access through this feature?
There are four different types of Facebook Memories that you can see.
Memories of the day
In this category of the memory section, you will be able to see the memories of a specific day. Suppose you posted pictures from your trip to some lovely location. Exactly a year later, or whenever you want to access it, you can return to those photos posted on a specific day to relive those memories again. Facebook itself shares these memories for you to look at.
Memories of your friends
Friendships should have anniversaries, too, because friends are a particular part of our lives. Hence Facebook has introduced an option where you can see when you became friends with someone on Facebook and the memories you share with them. This can help you remember your friends even though you are not in touch and cherish your friendship with those people.
Recap of your memories
You can watch a short recap of all your memories of the month and season in a video and go through them again. This is especially useful if those memories are very close to your heart. Through the recap memory option, you can watch the memories and feel those moments again.
Memories that you might have missed
If you are not a regular tracker of your Facebook memories, this option will be convenient for you. This feature lets you go through all the memories you might have missed or overlooked. It is easy and stores all your memories that you might want to relish later.
What if I do not want to see specific Facebook Memories?
If there are good memories, then there are also bad memories. And this is true for Facebook as well. Suppose you had a fallout in one of your relationships and do not want to go through a memory for that specific person or event related to them; you can filter your options to remove them permanently from your profile. This way, it will not pop up on your feed, saving you from any unnecessary memory flashing back to you.
Is there any other way to go through old posts?
There is one alternative to going through older posts option other than memories. That is going through the post via the activity log. If you are looking for a specific post on your profile or related to someone else’s profile, go to settings and the activity log section. You can filter the activity by inserting the specific dates and clicking on search. Through this too you can go through old memories in a way.
What are the other features of Facebook apart from memories?
Facebook is a top-rated and trending social media platform. Nine out of ten people have Facebook. That is because it is brimming with various features that can keep the user engaged for an extended period. Businesses and communities can also find their niche on this application.
Here are some of the basic features of Facebook
The news feed
This is the first thing you will see when you log in to your Facebook account. The new feed showcases the news from the pages you follow, the news regarding your friends and family, and any notification regarding any new feature introduced on the platform. To summarize, the news feed is a page providing and updating you with the information in your social circle.
The friend list option is available on the taskbar of the page or your profile page. It displays the number of friends you have and their respective profiles. If you want to ‘unfriend’ someone, or remove them from your list, click on that person’s profile, go to the friend icon, and click on unfriend. Then all their relationships on social media will be removed from your news feed and profile. You will not be getting any notifications about them.
Likes, comments, and shares
A very common feature of a social media app, the like, comment, and share buttons help us to react and respond to our friend’s and family’s posts. You can also like posts made by Facebook pages that you follow, as well as share any specific post that you liked on your timeline.
Texting and messaging
