rolled out its 'On this Day'
app recently and started forcing everyone to see daily memories on their news feeds. In principle this is a nice idea but personally I do not care for this functionality. Sadly there was no way to disable this app, but there is a way to prevent it from accessing your past posts which effectively turns this feature off. Here's how.
After following these steps, you will no longer be bothered by this again...
You have to do this through a web browser since these features do not seem to be available on the mobile Facebook
app. First from the Home page look on the left side for the Apps
section. Click the On This Day
app. If this app is not shown, click the More
link next to Apps
, this will take you to a list of all apps you have and you'll be able to find On This Day
After On This Day
is loaded, click Preferences
In the Filters
section, click Edit
Click on Select Dates
and then enter the earliest date that Facebook
will allow you to and then manually enter a date some time in the future and click Save
. It's better to make the future date quite far in the future.
Finally click Save
and you're done.
You should stop seeing new memories after this point.
