By: System Admin in Inspirational

Internet users are asking about Facebook's year in review feature after the giant social media platform unveiled its latest video creator app. Are you familiar on this latest trend?

We noticed in the past two days that social media users are proudly sharing their "Year in Review 2016" videos. We initially ignore the additional function of Facebook but we've been getting a lot of inquiries asking further details about the app including a request for a guide on how to create the video.

To the followers of the CEO and founder of Facebook "Mark Zuckerberg", most likely all of you are already aware of the year in review. This post, however, is intended to those people who needs help and additional understanding of the feature.

What is Facebook Year in Review?

At the help center page of Facebook, the description of Year in review is "a collection of photos from your most significant moments this year." It may include your uploaded photos and messages you posted in 2016.


The app gives you the freedom to easily modify the content of your year in review video. You can replace the messages and photos that you want to include in the clip.

How to create your year in review video on Facebook?

Building your own video doesn't require a professional graphics skills because Facebook would automatically suggest a batch of photos and posts you had in 2016. Also, you don't have to use a high-end computer system to run the software application.

The Facebook video app is so amazing! It does its job without too many actions from the end users. The graphical layout and even the children can easily follow the given instructions.


To begin, you need to go to the official page of the Facebook year in review app. Once the window loads everything, click on "request video" to gain access to the app. This is the message that will be displayed on the page after you hit the "request video" button.

(Your name), we wanted to give you a chance to look back at your year. It should only be a few minutes now! We'll send you a notification when your video is ready.

Just a little heads up, you need some patience before you can start editing your year in review video. At this stage, you have to wait for a couple of minutes. From our own experience, it took us less than 5 minutes to get the notification alert telling that the video is ready for editing and sharing.

When you receive the notification, it will direct you to a page which shows two buttons (1)Edit Video and (2)Share Video. By default, a compilation of some pre-selected photos and messages will be in the suggested video. If you wish to alter the content or replace the entire batch of pictures and messages, simply click "Edit Video".

The sharing option can be set to limit the visibility of your year in review 2016 video to certain audiences that you want. You can choose to set it to your friends only or share it to the entire Facebook community.

Now that you know what Facebook year in review is all about including the details on how to create your own video, it would be nice if you will create one on Facebook. Share your good memories, success stories, as well as your inspiring posts in 2016.

Buying discounted items from huge mall sale and giving it to some poor kids is a nice thing to do but aside from that we could also promote love and peace this holiday season thru the year in review video on Facebook. It's an another avenue to effectively create positive impact to the world!
