Facebook Memories Shows Users a Year by Year Summary of their Activity
Facebook users got an early look at a new feature this morning called Memories which lets users browse Facebook activity for each year since they joined. One of the accidentally revealed prototypes, Memories utilizes a navigation bar to lets user jump between years and view counts of each year’s status updates, added friends, Likes, and Events. Details on the product are scarce since it was only up for a few minutes, but we also know a link to a user’s check-ins was temporarily available.
As many Facebook users have now been members for a long time and have built up lots of content and connections, innovative ways to browse this content are both satisfying to users and a good way to increase time-on-site.
