I would like my Look Back video to show a few of my profile photos for three or four seconds and then jump to a clip of the wheelchair/cliff scene from Mac and Me.

Gunny Highway: But I was longing to read an article about not wanting to see people's Facebook videos.


Well, hopefully there will be a response article on Slate entitled, "Actually, HuffPo, we love the Look Back videos and want Facebook to do more of them." Dueling Twitter hashtags will be established, #IStandWithHuffPo and #SlateIsRight. CNN will pick up a story about the online controversy swirling around Look Back videos. That story will get linked to Reddit, and a few days later will be on Fark. Bloggers will begin taking sides. There will be a national campaign started, "Look Back No Longer: Leave Facebook Now," in which people pledge to close their Facebook accounts. A day later, another campaign will launch: "Look Forward to More Looking Back: Sign Up Two Friends for Facebook." More news coverage will follow. A Chick-fil-A spokesperson will make some off-the-cuff comment and one side will start being boycotted. Sarah Palin will speak to the issue. Multiple petitions will appear on the Whitehouse.gov site. And then, right as the entire nation is poised at the brink, something truly important will happen that reminds us all of how appallingly transient and shallow we can be, how easy it is in this increasingly crowded world to lose sight of what's truly important and get caught up in fake controversies and non-existent issues. I'm talking about Justin Bieber getting arrested again, of course. Can you imagine?

Robo Beat: Lately I've been on a streak of de-friending and purging anyone I see posting one of those asinine bitstrips comics.

Mine was mostly just a bunch of pictures of cereal boxes...set to sad music.

It described my life pretty well.

Mine had a bunch of pictures of my cats and a post I made of a picture of Jolly Green Giant "Just For One" veggies that said "Thanks for mocking me Green Giant."  Thanks for showing me how pathetic I am in a one-minute video Facebook!

I shared my video and included my wife's friends while sipping a latte from Starbucks after eating Olive Garden.

So suck it, FB, OG, and SB haters.

spelletrader: Or shiat that Snopes debunked a decade ago, Buzzfeed quizzes, copy and paste chain statuses, game spam, 50 uses for some common household item, etc etc.


I recently confirmed a friend request from a 65-year-old family friend who loves guns, dogs, reproductive rights and the Tea Party... and has a LOT of time on her hands at night.  Every day, 15 to 30 straight EEcards, Freedomworks links, inspirational messages... fortunately on the desktop version you can easily block shares from sources (like Freedomworks), without blocking your friends.  Yay!

Madduck: I feel for you. The first pic my look back video was of my 2 young girls, the last time I saw them, before my ex-wife disappeared with them.


This thread is the "hit me right in the parenting feels" tournament of champions, evidently.  That is heart-rending; Jaylectricity's, too.

I thought it was amusing to see who had the worst video. I put mine up, got mocked, then everyone else did theirs and got mocked even more. The funniest were the ones that didn't have anything interesting. It made Facebook entertaining for a night, though I'm sure in a fashion completely contrary to their intentions.

FTDA: jaylectricity: I saw those popping up. I didn't click on them but I was curious to see mine.

Most liked posts:

"So I'm going to be a daddy!"
"For those that missed it because it got buried in the comments, it's a girl"

We lost the baby after 8 months. I feel like going back to erase those posts. But I've already been unhealthily trying to pretend it never happened.

Coming from another Dad that's lost a child, you have my deepest sympathies.

I am so posting this to my Facebook page. I am taking a risk I know but someone needs to take a stand.

I avoid Facebook but my wife has an account.

She's Been complaining about how annoying and obnoxious all the look back videos people are posting are.

Then she complained that she couldn't create her own using her phone app.
