Ive never thought about the “On this Day” Facebook App like this
“We care about you and your memories. So we wanted to remind you of this post you shared 3 years ago today.” – Facebook
The writer continues on … “Oh really, Facebook? If you cared about me, you wouldn’t show me a picture of my ex-boyfriend kissing me underneath the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, in our matching Northface raincoats. I guess your invasive, all-knowing algorithms haven’t quite figured out how to detect heartbreak via timeline posts.”
We never write or post about our tragedies, our heartbreaks, our failures. So Facebook is left to assume that I have nothing but pleasant memories worthy of resurface.
