I am not a fan of Facebook’s automatic memory and announcement functions. Sure, it’s nice to be reminded of the epic vacation you went on after college and how thin and tanned you were. It’s not so much fun to remember the terrible haircut you had in your 20s and when bootcut jeans were a thing.
Also, there’s what happened to Gary. Who in their right mind looked at the Facebook algorithm and thought that Gary would want to be notified when no-one wished him Happy Birthday? It’s just a bit mean if you ask me.
