How To Stop Facebook From Showing Unpleasant Memories

Use the desktop version of Facebook to use its facility to filter your posts, which remind you of some annoying memories from last year.

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.
