AllThingsD reports that Facebook is currently testing a new feature which will remind users of their old posts. The feature will be embedded on the newsfeed of each user.
In addition, AllThingsD secured a confirmation of the aforementioned tests by obtaining an official statement from a spokesperson. More particularly:
[quote]“We’re testing a new way to help you remember favorite moments by making it easier to revisit previous News Feed posts. When you click on this notice, you will see a selection of some of the top posts from your News Feed from a year ago. This is just a small test at this stage.” [/quote]
Given the feature’s limited exposure, for the time being, only time will tell about its future development and formulation. Our feeling is that it will bring both nostalgia and some embarrassment, as well.
