Last year, Facebook did a “year in review” video for each user which was a quick overview of your year in photos and status’ on the social network.
This year, the company is doing something a little different. A new mobile-first year in review shows off your best moments from each month of 2014, with photos and statuses intertwined and allows customization of what images and updates are shown.
Once you’re happy with your highlights, you can share it to your Facebook wall so others can check it out or create their own. Users are able to view it on the web or on mobile, however the mobile experience is far superior with its fluid animations.
Web users can’t customize their highlights reel; only those on mobile appear to get the customization option, which lets you add and remove photos/statuses, change the illustration and sign the post itself with a selfie.
This year’s take on your highlights is a great improvement over last year’s video highlight feature; I much prefer the ability to scroll through and look at my own pace, rather than at the auto generated video’s speed.
