As we are entering the New Year, there must be some sweet and bitter memories you left behind. While the sweet memories are always good to ruminate over, it is bitter ones we want to forget. Facebook, being our favorite social media channel, provides you a feature “On This Day” or “Year In Review”.
In this feature, you can share past memories of the year with your friends on your Timeline. This could be an interesting for some and repulsive for many. Moreover, during a year, you may have falling-out with many of your virtual friends, and therefore, you don't want to see memories with. Similarly, there are some dates that you don't want to see memories from.
Thankfully, Facebook gives you a facility to filter your posts. And if you want to filter those “people” and “dates”, you need to use desktop version of Facebook.
