The year 2016 is finally almost over and Facebook has something to give for all its active users. Introducing the personalized Facebook Year in Review videos that capture the highlights of the previous year on a global scale.

The Annual Facebook Year In Review

Annually, Facebook creates a general Year in Review video that captures the highlights of the previous year on a global scale. This tool creates a great impact to all users since Facebook also allows them to view a personalized Year in Review video that pulls highlights from their page. "Your Year in Review is a personalized video that lets you highlight and share your meaningful moments from this year. These moments can include photos and posts that you've shared or been tagged in."

According to Bustle, aside from giving users time to personalized more the video by replacing the suggested photos and events, users are also allowed to share the video with their Facebook friends so everyone can relive the fun memories, celebrate accomplishments and congrats for all achievements. You can also adjust the privacy settings to specify who sees your Year In Review Video upon sharing, or keep it private altogether.
