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:
You’d think with all the information Facebook has on us that they could make more compelling year in review videos.

I would rather cut off my own arm than watch my 2016 year in review.

Facebook now hits you right in the face with your year in review in the event you want to spend 5 minutes being upset

No thanks Facebook, I don't need to see my year in review. I already know what a dumpster fire looks like.

If I see one more "#yearinreview" on Facebook I'm gunna throw my phone out the window

Guess it could be worse… as least it’s finally not reminding me of all my exes.
The Facebook #yearinreview is like a look back with all the people I’ve had disappointing sex with over the past year or so.

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:
Getting a jump on this: No one gives a shit about your “Year in Review” Facebook video. Honestly, even you don’t care about yours.

In addition to the mundane reminders, Facebook also compiled the top 10 trending topics around the world:
- US Presidential Election
- Brazilian Politics
- Pokémon Go
- Black Lives Matter
- Rodrigo Duterte & Philippine Presidential Election
- Super Bowl
- David Bowie
- 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:
