Facebook Apologizes After 'Year in Review' Stirs Up Bad Memories for Some Users

While scrolling through your News Feed on Facebook this holiday, you probably encountered the typical statuses from friends: photographs of families opening gifts and inevitably, a few Facebook's "Year in Review" posts. "Year in Review" is a photo slide of highlights from your Facebook Timeline from the past year. Unfortunately, Facebook's algorithm for choosing the images wasn't very thoughtful, dishing out good memories along with the bad. Because the algorithm chooses photos and moments that had the most interaction, it also includes sad memories.
