In this post, you will understand how year in review app of Facebook works including the detailed tutorial on how to create a video using the application.
When we transition to a brand new year, a unique tradition of Facebook allows every users to compile some memorable collection of photos you have uploaded yourself along with significant comments as well as some of your online friends that you've added in 2016.
The normal practice of Facebook is to give everyone the opportunity to share a summary of the users' timeline in 2016 which they officially call "year in review" video. For some reasons, which only Facebook could really explain, the feature sometimes is not automatically activated. Some of you have to manually request for it so you can have access to the video.
How to access your year in review video on Facebook?
As we just mentioned, not all internet users will have a direct view on their year in review video. The most important action that you have to do is to visit the link of the Facebook app. This can be simply done by clicking the following URL. It's anchored to a new window so you can continue to read our post which will serve as your guide for you to complete the process.
If the video is not yet available, at the bottom of the page a message will be displayed that reads;
Your video isn't quite ready yet. To speed up the process, click Request Video.
The instruction is very straight forward, so just click on the button 'Request Video'. After you hit the button, a text in gree font will be displayed.
It should only be a few minutes now! We'll send you a notification when your video is ready.
At this point, it would be useless if you will stay on the page for long because the artificial intelligence mechanism built by the largest social networking in the world will have to take some time to select and compile your 2016 year in review video.
As what the message said, just wait for the notification to arrive so you can check the details of the video. Once the alert message is received, you will be forwarded to a page that gives you two options (1)Edit Video and (2)Share Video. If you choose the latter, it will post your video immediately to your timeline so your friends can see it.
If you decide to have a quick look on the details of your year in review video, just hit 'Edit Video'. The next page allows you to change or swap the suggested element by clicking 'replace this post'.
Once done editing the video, you can hit 'Share'. Take note of the advance sharing options. You have the control as to who are the people you like to see your video by manually setting the right audience. If you wish to share it publicly to the entire Facebook community, just click share and post it on your timeline.
