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.

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.

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.

Uninstalled it today. I'm so fucking annoyed with all these updates that aren't changing shit. *deep breath*

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

Well played, Facebook. *Sniff

I hate Facebook!!! Full of fake people! I've been going to tech websites a lot more recently.

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

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

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.

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 :(

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! :(

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.

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

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.

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