This time of the year, everyone likes to take a moment and reflect on the highlights of the past 12 months and Facebook just made that much easier. Today Facebook released a personal Year In Review to each of its one billion users. Users are able to view your top 20 moments of the past 12 month this simply by visiting




We are still unsure on how Facebook is deciding what constitutes a "Top Moment", but we are sure that it involves likes, comments, and shares. We have seen some reports of users top moments just being random unimportant post that got a fair number of likes or shares. A personal example was when my Alma mater lost a football game to a rival school. It was not that big of a deal to me, but Facebook deemed it as one of my top 20 moments of 2012.


Sources contacted Facebook and asked about the personalized Year In Review, and Facebook responded: the idea is to "give people an interactive experience to look back at 2012. People will notice stories they have forgotten about it, which makes it more nostalgic."
