I was having a bad day a while back and Facebook was nice enough to show a post and pic of me and our dog the day before we put little Dottie to sleep : (

That's horrible. I live in fear of the day my RIP post for my cat shows up in FB memories - it got tons of engagements at the time so I think they'll definitley go for it.

So happy I'm off fb. It's been 2 weeks now? Haven't missed it at all.

i don't think it filters 'memories' in any way, based on the four bits of absolute tosh it just gave me, none of which has a single like.
"is imagining he's playing tennis"
oh look, 6 years ago i was in kensington waiting for the comedy to start. i know this because i checked in from the pub next door. fascinating.

i don't miss facebook but i do miss talking to most of my internet friends. they're good people but the opportunities for quality socialization on facebook just aren't there, i find it to be an addiction that ultimately does more harm than good. i need to find more friends i can hang out with in person, but the social anxiety makes it challenging...

ilx is the only good place on the internet

(in b4 inevitable 'and even ilx sucks' posts)
They don't show YouTube links in memories anymore, but I think that's the extent of the filtering (aside possibly from game/app posts).

Have deactivated FB and IG for a little more than a month now and it's been brilliant. Don't miss either.
Wish I could take myself off Twitter too but it's a job requirement, unfortunately.

I have been off fb for a couple of weeks. It's liberating. I do miss some people but the downsides being on it are outweighing the former. Back on ilx which feels grebt. Just can't access my stevienixed account. Nathom will do. Lol

Well, you get the FB ilxors here too, so there’s that!

"You have two memories..."
but before that, here's a crappy video of pictures you've posted floating around that we put together because it is Friends' Day
and here's a 3 word post from 9 years ago (that one's probably on me)
and here's a crappy video of pictures you've posted that we've cobbled together for no other reason than it used to be January and now it isn't. Your January Highlights.
and here's a memory from two years ago yesterday that you might have missed (but didn't)
meanwhile those group posts you made to that group with 26 people in it, we're only going to show that to two of them, despite the fact that they all subscribed specifically.
