Facebook today announced the launch of a dedicated "Memories" section on its social network, which the company says is designed to be a single place on Facebook to reflect on "the moments you've shared with family and friends."

Memories, which is an expanded version of the current "On This Day" feature, provides a look back at posts and photos, friends you've made, and major life events.

Facebook says the Memories page will integrate several sections, including "On This Day," which will continue to show posts and photos and "Friends Made On This Day," highlighting when you added a person as a friend.

Recaps of Memories will also be included, featuring monthly recaps of memories that have been bundled into a message or a short video, and finally, the section will house "Memories You May Have Missed," highlighting new content if you haven't checked your memories lately.

Facebook says that Memories will be customizable using built-in controls to hide content if desired.

We know that memories are deeply personal -- and they're not all positive. We try to listen to feedback and design these features so that they're thoughtful and offer people the right controls that are easy to access. We work hard to ensure that we treat the content as part of each individual's personal experience, and are thankful for the input people have shared with us over the past three years.

The new Memories section, which is rolling out, can be accessed through a Memories link, to the left of the News Feed when on a computer, and in the "More" tab on mobile devices.

One day, every Facebook user... and I mean every single one, will look back at what a tremendous waste of time it was.

You ultimately give Zuckerberg everything and it leaves you with nothing.

Just in case they missed an opportunity to harvest some sellable data from when you originally posted.

Does Facebook include (in this update) when they lied to the users and sold their information to anyone with the cash in the new memories?

Their common sense should tell more and more people to avoid FB.

I can’t think of a more insidious, immoral and reprehensible company then Facebook. They make big oil and big pharma look like UNICEF. But then you only have to look at its origin and founder/CEO to know why.

As a social network, it’s becoming less relevant day by day. Sadly as a company, quite the opposite.

If they hadn’t have swallowed up the future in Instagram and WhatsApp, they’d be staring nervously into the abyss, looking down at the corpses of MySpace and Bebo.

A company too focused on the past will soon find its presence only there.
