Hate your Facebook Look Back video? Don't worry...

2014-02-07 20:14:06

It is a feature designed to mark Facebook's tenth anniversary - and, presumably, to make its 1.23 billion users a little misty-eyed with nostalgia.

The Look Back video selects the biggest moments of your Facebook life and presents them in a cheesy, one-minute show reel.

Pictures, status updates, 'life events' - the most significant snippets of your social networking life have been garnered from everything you've posted since the day you joined Facebook and packaged into a video.

You can even share your Look Back video on your own timeline, should you wish.

However, not everyone has been entirely happy with the content chosen by Facebook's auto-selection algorithms.

Whether it's an unflattering picture, an embarrassingly drunken status update or details from a relationship you'd rather forget, many have been complaining about their videos.

Fear not, this is a glitch Facebook seems keen to rectify.

Techies at the social networking site are working on an editing tool so people can remove and replace content.

A spokesman told TechCrunch: 'We will be launching an edit feature soon that will allow people to change moments in their movies or update the ones they shared. I don't have exact timing at the moment, but this will enable people to remove a post from the movie that was pre-selected and change it to a different one.'
