Facebook's Year In Review Is Sometimes A Year To Forget
Facebook is fielding complaints from some users who opened their year in review and saw memories they'd rather forget.By A.J. Feather | December 28, 2014
Algorithms have become an essential part of our daily lives online. From Google Search to LinkedIn's "People You May Know," algorithms help us find what we're looking for even when we're not looking for it. But one algorithm has some users upset.
Facebook launched its "Year In Review" this past week which compiles users' most engaged posts. But as some users are quickly learning, most engaged doesn't mean most joyful.
The application is reminding some users of pets that have passed away or gone missing and other tragic events they wanted to post on Facebook but didn't care to see a few months later. (Via Twitter / @RhyJamesy, Twitter / @AngryBlackLady)
