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 facebook.com/yearinreview.

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."
