Flashback: Facebook Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary by Recapping Your Life in 62 Seconds

If you’re on Facebook, a new video about your life went live online Tuesday.

Yes, you. And you, and you and you.

With the help of an automated tool, Facebook has created short, personalized video highlights for “hundreds of millions” of its users. The 62-second clip notes the year you joined Facebook, then shows a handful of your most-liked posts and a seemingly random selection of your photos — all set to instrumental music.

To see yours, go to Facebook/lookback and admire, or cringe.

Facebook posted the clips, titled “A Look Back,” without fanfare Tuesday to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the social network, which was founded by Mark Zuckerberg and four classmates at Harvard University on Feb. 4, 2004.

The videos are available to everyone who uses Facebook in English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Turkish, Indonesian and Brazilian Portuguese.

Depending on how much content you have shared and how long you have been on Facebook, you will either see the personalized video, a collection of photos or a simple thank-you card, a spokesperson said.

If the clip contains posts you’d prefer to keep private, you can edit them via an “Edit Your Movie” button, a spokesperson said.

“It’s been amazing to see how all of you have used our tools to build a real community. You’ve shared the happy moments and the painful ones,” Zuckerberg said.
