Facebook has launched short personalized video highlights for over hundreds of millions of its users that notes the year you joined Facebook, a couple of most liked posts on your timeline and a selection of random photos that play to instrumental music.

The 62-second clips are available to everyone using English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Turkish, Indonesian and Brazilian Portuguese on their Facebook pages and will only last a month unless you share them to friends.

“It’s amazing to see how all of you have used our tools to build real community. You’ve shared the happy moments and the painful ones,” said Mark Zuckerberg who has put up the clips christened ‘A look back’ to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the social network.

However, Facebook gives its users an option to edit if clips put up are considered confidential. Launched in 2004, the medium has been known to change how we talk people have adjusted to terms that can easily identify you as a social media active.  “friend” “unfriend” are most common with active Facebook users “tag”  “poke” directly identify the topic at hand between people which was not recognizable 10 years ago.

To see your Facebook clip, go to Facebook/lookback and either admire or cringe on viewing.
