Facebook’s ‘Year In Review’ just summed up how bad 2017 really was
Facebook just proved to us yet again why 2017 was the worst.
The social network just released their 2017 year in review videos to individual users and the last thing anyone wants to do is relieve this terrible year over again.
If 2017 was the year for you, Facebook’s blog post compiled the good (and the bad) trends. According to the post, the most reactions stemmed from International Women’s Day, Super Bowl 51 and the Las Vegas Violence.
It was followed by the ongoing natural disasters and violence from around the world, but the Solar Eclipse wasn’t that bad unless you were ripped off by overly expensive glasses.
Many people “relived” their fondest memories of this year, while others didn’t even have enough content to receive a video. If that’s not a sign that 2017 is messed up then we don’t know what is.
Facebook users expressed themselves about their personal videos in the best way… with utter disdain.
If my Facebook Year in Review video were honest, it’d just be quick cuts of me screaming and using the word “fuck” as various parts of speech.

Facebook just presented me with one of those “year in review” prompts.
Let me get this straight, Facebook. You want me to RELIVE 2017.
How about you die in a fire?

Facebook created a “Year in Review” video for me that is half stuff like my family smiling in a cornfield in Missouri and half stuff like Trump giving Kremlin officials state secrets inside the Oval Office

My Facebook “Year in Review” is just 20 photos of me sobbing on the floor surrounded by half-eaten cakes.

I thought I hated social media for engagement posts but now I also have to hate it for all of the sappy year in review posts

Weird how Facebook is showing us “2017 in review” when we all know 2016 never ended.

So, Facebook you can keep your year in review. We’d much rather look into the (hopefully) bright future.
