Facebook is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a feature many users have loved. So much that all our newsfeeds have filled up with “Look Back” videos since it went live on Tuesday. That, and people complaining about Facebook’s choice of images in their video…
You might not like the pics Facebook chose for your video because of many reasons. Τoo many pics of people you are no longer in touch with, pictures of stuff you regret having posted, etc…
Well the good news is that Facebook is working on an editor tool for these videos. Greg Kumparak from TechCrunch reports that there was supposed to have been an edit tool built in which was just not ready on time for Facebook’s anniversary. The tool would allow you to pick alternative photos/clips if you were not happy with the ones that Facebook picked for you.
Greg reached out to Facebook about a few issues users were having with Look Back, and a rep from the company confirmed the feature:
We will be launching an Edit feature soon that will allow people to change moments in their movies or update the ones they shared. I don’t have exact timing at the moment, but this will enable people to remove a post from the movie that was pre-selected and change it to a different one.
Facebook also provides an Help page for people who are not too sure what “A Look Back” video is and how they can use and share it. You can access it here: Facebook Help on “A Look Back”
