Facebook Looking Back

Facebook is celebrating its 10 year birthday today, and to celebrate the occasion, as well as the people who made it successful (that would be YOU!), Facebook created a special “Look Back” feature, giving users a nostalgic look into their Facebook history. The lookback consists of a video, tailor made for each user, showing their most important Facebook moments such as most-liked posts and photos.
