Now, a single tab for all Facebook memories

Social media giant Facebook announced the launch of a new ‘Memories’ section, allowing users to view all their memories shared with family and friends, including posts and photos, in a single window.

As per the company, the update comes as a revamped form of Facebook’s ‘On This Day’ feature.

“Every day, more than 90 million people use On This Day to reminisce about moments they’ve shared on Facebook and research suggests this kind of reflection can have a positive impact on people’s mood and overall well-being. This is why we’re updating the experience to ensure all of your memories are easy to find,” Oren Hod, Product Manager at Facebook, wrote in a blog post.

The new Memories page includes the following sections:

“We know that memories are deeply personal – and they’re not all positive. We try to listen to feedback and design these features so that they’re thoughtful and offer people the right controls that are easy to access. We work hard to ensure that we treat the content as part of each individual’s personal experience, and are thankful for the input people have shared with us over the past three years,” said Oren.

Facebook users can access memories through the Memories bookmark either to the left of the News Feed on a computer or in the “more” tab on the bottom right of the mobile app.

Users can also access Memories through notifications, through messages that appear on the News Feed.
