It seems social networking giant Facebook is leaving no stone unturned to keep its user base intact, in fact, growing. With direct news feed to integration with 20 third party apps with its Messenger, the social website company has now officially launched a feature known as “On This Day”.
As the name suggests, the new “On This Day” feature will allow the Facebook users to see a past feed of everything that they have posted on the social site on a given date in the previous years, including photos, shares and posts they were tagged in on that day.
According to the reports, Facebook began testing the feature around two years ago.
The users can find an option to go to the “On This Day” page when they log on to their Facebook account. From this page, the users can look into all the contents that they had posted on the same date in previous years. The users even get an option to share the past photos and posts from the memory lane with their friends.
The users can also sign up for allowing notifications so that they are kept reminded to check all the feeds every day.
The social networking forum is also taking preventative measures to ensure that the nostalgia induced by it is not painful for any user. In this regard, Facebook will give special care in order to avoid showing posts that can spread disgrace or emotional distress, such as feeds from people who have died or from those who were in a relationship earlier and now have changed their statuses.
