It鈥檚 that most wonderful time of year again 鈥 and for once, no, we鈥檙e not talking about the holidays聽or even New Year鈥檚 Eve. We鈥檙e talking about the time of year when everyone鈥檚 Facebook聽Year in Review starts taking over your newsfeed.聽As annoying as it might get, you have to admit聽it鈥檚 super interesting to see how Facebook has aggregated your聽photos聽over the year, and it can be kinda nice to take a trip down memory lane鈥 that is, until you come face to face with a picture you did NOT want to see. For the first time ever, Facebook has added a crucial new update to the mix that you鈥檙e going to really appreciate.


Now you can actually edit which photos go into your Year in Review. This feature is available both through Facebook鈥檚 Year in Review desktop site and also through the mobile version. Select up to 10 photos that you uploaded to your profile over the year to make the best, more personal Year in Review page for 2015.

According to Facebook, this update was integrated after backlash from last year when the Year in Review churned up photos that users often didn鈥檛 want to be reminded of. 鈥淲e heard feedback last year that we need to do more to select the photos that are most enjoyable to people and make it easier for them to edit the photos they see and share in their Year in Review. So we鈥檝e applied a unique set of filters to Your Year in Review to reduce the chance we鈥檒l show you a photo you don鈥檛 want to see,鈥 Facebook said in a statement regarding聽the upgrade.

Oh good. No one has to see that horrifying聽photo your boyfriend posted of you sleeping with your mouth open mid-Netflix binge. Whew.
