Here's how stop seeing Facebook's 'On This Day' nostalgia generator

Sick of seeing 'On This Day' notifications and prompts from Facebook? Here's how to turn them off

If you're sick of seeing past memories and wish Facebook would (partly) get out of your life, the whizz-kids at Gizmodo have posted a guide on how to turn them off.

It's as simple as heading to the 'On This Day' page and telling this social media giant that you're not interested in seeing posts between certain dates (found in the preferences section). If you pick a time before your account was created and up until late 2017, you're not going to see anything for quite some time.

This semi-permanent solution is the best that I've seen so far - besides simply not posting on Facebook at all. If you're super-keen on nostalgia, I suggest checking our your MySpace profile.
