Facebook Feature Reminds Everyone Where They Were When Trump Won The Presidency

Eric Lieberman | Tech and Law Reporter

Facebook has a feature that shows users their memories from the exact day in the previous year — leading to presumably thousands of people readdressing the 2016 presidential election results.

Known as “On This Day,” the component of the social media platform displays users’ content from the year prior, including personal posts, others’ posts they happen to be tagged in, and major life events. So depending on a person’s political leanings, Facebook is essentially either allowing people to re-celebrate President Donald Trump’s victory, remain indifferent from the results, or relive what was agonizing for them.

Many are part of that latter category in which they are quite upset they have to once again experience trauma from the day that essentially turned typical electoral politics in America on its head.

Even the liberal publication Slate chimed in.

In contrast, supporters of Trump probably reveled in their Facebook-provided memories.
