    • But unlike last year,
      however, the social juggernaut is weeding out bad memories from the options it
      shows users.
    •  
    • In 2014, the
      company’s algorithm failed to distinguish between good and bad memories, and
      picked up depressing photos from a user’s timeline as well. Facebook said it
      has taken better precautions this time, and “applied a unique set of
      filters” to prevent such photos from popping-up.
    •  
    • “We won’t show
      you photos where memorialised accounts or exes are tagged, or photos with
      people you’ve blocked or added to your On This Day preferences.” the
      company told
      TechCrunch.
    •  
    • In addition, the social
      network assured that if the algorithm fails to detect a sad image, users will
      have the option to manually remove it from the list. Furthermore, users can, if
      they wish, choose photos they have been tagged to this year, even by filtered
      people while manually editing it.
    •  
    • Over the months, Facebook
      has taken precautions to make sure sad images don’t show up in any of these
      “reviews”. In October, it updated its ‘On This Day’ tool to weed out such
      images from getting picked up by.
