“People often look back at old photos and other memories they’ve shared on Facebook,” the social networking site says here, and so its launching “On This Day,” billed as “a new way to look back at things you have shared and posts you’ve been tagged in on Facebook.”
The feature “shows content from this date in the past. For example, you might see past status updates, photos, posts from friends and other things you’ve shared or been tagged in – from one year ago, two years ago, and so on.”
The On This Day pages are private, visible only to individual members. “ Only you will see this content unless you decide to share it with your friends,” Facebook adds.
