Facebook is marking its 12th anniversary by releasing a new video feature that stitches together photos of users with their nearest and dearest.
The personalized video was released in honor of Facebook’s birthday, which the company has dubbed “Friends Day.”
The video will appear at the top of your newsfeed and pieces together snapshots of you and your friends with comments and captions. Think of it as a video photo album.
Facebook in 2030? 5 billion users, says Zuck
If you aren’t satisfied with the video, you can choose alternative images and share the video on your timeline.
The new video can be viewed privately or shared with friends.
In January, Mark Zuckerberg asked Facebook users to share their stories of friendship for #Friendsday on Feb. 4.
In a Facebook post, Zuckerberg said "friendsday" is "a moment to celebrate the friendships that have made a difference in your life."
"The acts of friendship, love and kindness we all share on Facebook are changing the world every day in ways we can't fully measure" he wrote. "Sometimes they just make people in our lives feel a bit more loved. Sometimes friendship becomes a force that sets us on a different path in life. Sometimes friendship moves the world."
