Facebook%u2019s %u2018Year in Review%u2019 app swings from merely annoying to tragic - The Washington Post. If it is true that most men lead lives of quiet desperation, then Facebook shouldn't publish it, even to the user, without prior permission. We have all had our posts turned into a Year In Review meme lately; and, for most of us, who tend to err on the side of happy times posts to our Facebook friends, this is like a family photo album, filled with photos of those we like and are happy about. Facebook needs to look more closely at the algorithm, however, and give us the option to decide whether we want such a compendium in our feed. Sure, we get to choose whether we share it; but, for this dad, who lost his daughter during the year, it must have been agonizing to have the Year In Review post thrust in his face, not at a time of his choosing. The fact that he had the courage to write about it says a lot about him, and he should be commended. So, Facebook, what are you going to do about it?
