Facebook Lookback

Take a look at the most important moments captured by the social network

Facebook, believe it or not, is all of 10 years old today. And to celebrate, it's giving you a look back at your life on Facebook with a video montage. You'll see a sampling of your first interactions on Facebook, your most-liked posts, important pictures and life events set to some heart-touching music.

You simply have the option to watch and share the video (naturally), but don't have the ability to download it or anything like you could Google's holiday video, but it's still a nice gesture regardless. Folks have undoubtedly kept record of a good portion of their life at this point on Facebook.

Check it out at http://facebook.com/lookback (it's tough to find in the app, but doable if you hunt around), you may just be reminded of a few lost memories.

Any way to get the path of how to find it in the app?

It'd make it much easier.

I searched for "Lookback" and got to it from some third-party page or app, I think. It was ... weird. Facebook's still dumb like that.

ryanmtech says:

Right. I agree.

But yea I couldn't get the webpage to pull up in Chrome on my G2, I actually had to use the "browser" app that comes preinstalled.

Not sure if it was just my device or what.

So, they're copying what Google did at the end of 2013?

Mine wouldn't find very much.

Mine kinda made me tear up. It prominently featured the birth of my daughter and moments with my wife.

Well played, Facebook. *Sniff

Jay, could you at least try to appear like anything other than the caricature of an actual human being in your comments?

https://www.facebook.com/lookback

I used that link in my Android browser and it redirected me to the Mobile site. Looks great AND you can share it with the "Share Your Movie" button below the video.

Made me laugh and feel nostalgic/old. Okay, just old... :-)

aitt says:

I was gonna say you can share it if you pull it up on the web browser.

I can't share it. Doesn't show a button for that.

aitt says:

I liked mines. Showed the post when my wife said yes to my propasal and us getting our marriage license. Nice.

Steve Lee4 says:

If you really want to you can long press the video after playing on android and 'save video'.. Or at least I could on my n5

Confirmed to work on the Moto X. To clarify do this in a web browser; not the app.

Nrike says:

That "big green share button" you mentioned in the post is gone. :(

fastracer says:

I've tried every browser on my phone and the PC..no share button...they remove it?

allyn274 says:

Agreed. I thought I was losing my mind.

You can use the mobile link or disable Adblockers. I'm going to keep this blog post open with the latest "fixes" for this... http://sitesdoneright.com/blog/2014/02/facebook-lookback-no-share-button

Nrike says:

The "Big Green Button" is back!

I've tried every browser on my phone and laptop. When I go to the lookback page, all I get is a cluster of like 6 photos, no video. :( Anyone experience this as well? Really disappointed.

Cristina S says:

Me too. I've seen it once, not shared, then I see only photos...

I haven't even got to see my video once :(

Haley Martin says:

Exact same thing is happening to me! I had it at the very beginning, then my computer froze up during it, so I had to refresh the page and now it just shows the 6 pictures :(

Dan Hazel says:

Someone in the great digital abyss must save us!!

Dan Hazel says:

Same here, I haven't been able to see mine at all! Sadness.

I am so disappointed! I'm going to post to the help page on facebook and see what's going on. I really want to see my video and I'm afraid they won't fix it before the feature because unavailable! :(

Becomes*

Same here, I have tried my phone and my small laptop and the same 6 photos and no video, no share button. I can't get on my desktop because it picked now to crash. I thought it was just my phone but evidently not.

Heidi Ho73 says:

another article I read (CNN) said that not everyone got a video--some just get a picture-montage "thank you card". Not sure how it's determined who gets what...

Anyone still have the Facebook home app on their device even though it was removed

Hey twitter, follow the leads

Rewyz says:

If you don't see the big green "Share your movie" button, just delete the "/" after "lookback".

chefmorry says:

There was some sort of bug, from what I've gathered through twitter, that seems to have worked out.

Now I just want Facebook to allow us to edit the video. According to their official blog, we'll have the capability to decide what's included :

you can edit it "under the movie buttons" .... which sucks because all I have are six photos and no movie, which means I can't edit that either.

brad4560 says:

neat!!!

ayg says:

You've only been on Facebook for 7 years? Newbie...

I followed the link on my FB page and was pleasantly surprised. Was a short and direct video. Enjoyed watching my friends too.
