It is just normal for Facebook to remind you from day to day about your Facebook Memories from the past years. Facebook shows On This Day memories that could either be the posts and others’ posts that you are tagged in and when you became friends with someone on Facebook. Most of these Memories bring us back to the good old days and seeing these again could make us feel delighted. However, there are also those kinds of Memories that could make us feel otherwise.
If you think that you have some Memories on Facebook that you no longer want to be reminded of or can upset you in any way, such as photos of you and your ex from last year’s Valentine’s Day and the like, know that there’s a way to stop Facebook from showing you these kinds of disheartening reminders of the past.
