Facebook is one of the top social networking sites available. People use the site to stay in contact with family and friends as well as to make new friends. Throughout any given year, people post pictures of their families, share how they feel and share good news with everyone on their friends list. Dr Rod Rohrich feels it is interesting for some users to scroll through past posts to see how things have changed over time or to simply reminisce.
In 2013, Facebook added a new application that allows users to see a slide show of some of the top things that happened throughout their year. Not everyone enjoys the application and some of them are asking that Facebook change the way they manage the sometimes invasive application. The year in review pops up on individual pages for review. Although you have to press on the view button to hear the music, the video automatically runs through without the music. That has been painful for many and they do not want to relive every moment that they went through.
Although many people like the feature, those who do not have asked Facebook to give them an option to completely opt out of the painful device. They cited reasons such as the loss of a child, losing other loved ones and the ending of some relationships. Some people just do not want to see the video. In any case, there is no word from Facebook powers about whether they will change things for next year or leave it as it is today.
