Last year, we have seen Look Back videos that compile your highlights since joining Facebook. Look Back video is a short movie which includes collection of your photos depending on how long you’ve been on Facebook and how much you’ve shared.
Coming back to the recent video tool, it encourages the users to create a personalized video to remember the good old times they’ve had with specific friends or relatives. Users can select a friend from friends’ list and video theme. Users can select from three video themes – old friends, friends and family. According to the friend selected, Facebook generates photos saved of the user and their friend. It allows the users to choose maximum 10 photos and pick the greeting. Facebook then creates a 52-second video with music and a few phrases expressing thanks.
