Here's a new Facebook feature you'll actually like (seriously)

It might even make you want to hug Mark Zuckerberg.

WITH ALL OF its recent changes and privacy issues, you’d forgive some people for getting a little tired of Facebook.

But trust us, there’s a new feature on the social networking site that you’ll actually like – no matter how you feel about Mark Zuckerberg. If you aren’t filled with nostalgic memories and misty-eyed with joy after enabling its ’2012 Year in Review’ feature, we’d recommend a trip to the cardiologist, because you might have a lump of stone behind your ribcage.

It compiles all your ‘best bits’ from the past 12 months, using photos and status updates, taking you on a virtual trip down memory lane.

The best bit? It throws up all sorts of things you’d forgotten about, like this postcard an unnamed TheJournal.ie staffer wrote as a child and got round to posting to their Facebook wall on 2 January 2012.

There’s even a bonus mention of Quinnsworth to inspire memories from even further back.


Dear tooth fairy,

I’m sorry but I have lost my old tooth

you will find it in Quinnsworth car park near the toilets

thank you xxx
