Facebook released its annual year in review videos and they’re driving people crazy

Another year, another lame review video.

I’ll admit it, I check my Facebook first thing in the morning. It usually leads to quite a few interesting tidbits I’ve missed while sleeping. Today however, I was greeted with a very sad year in review video.

At first, I thought I was being too harsh – perhaps my life isn’t all that interesting. But it seems I’m not the only one disillusioned by the curated content:


Guess it could be worse… as least it’s finally not reminding me of all my exes.

If you’re one of the (very) few people who enjoy being emotionally pummelled, here’s an easy way to get your own video: Go to facebook.com.yearinreview. You’ll be presented with images and videos you posted throughout the year before selecting the ones you want to add to your Year in Review video.

But please heed this friendly reminder:

In addition to the mundane reminders, Facebook also compiled the top 10 trending topics around the world:

  1. US Presidential Election
  2. Brazilian Politics
  3. Pokémon Go
  4. Black Lives Matter
  5. Rodrigo Duterte & Philippine Presidential Election
  6. Olympics
  7. Brexit
  8. Super Bowl
  9. David Bowie
  10. Muhammad Ali

Not sure if the blasé attitude about police brutality is more infuriating or that Prince isn’t on that list…

One thing’s for sure, the dumpster-fire that is 2016 can’t end soon enough:
