For the majority of people like Bruce Levenson, the chance to review their year with their friends and family is being enjoyed with the ease and simplicity of the Facebook review of the year app. However, for others the app is causing major problems as this simple review option is causing unexpected memories and reminders to appear as the year draws to a close, NPR reports.
Amongst those who are less than impressed with the chance to allow Facebook to cobble together pictures taken and posted throughout 2014 are those who have split up with a partner or lost a loved one. Amongst those who have had their grief intensified over the Holiday period is Eric Meyer, who posted a blog entitled Inadvertent Algorithmic Cruelty over the smiling face of his six year old daughter appearing on an invite to review his year. Meyer lost his six year old daughter Rebbecca in June and found his Facebook experience a major problem.
