Facebook is pushing out a new update that brings a new way to look back at photos and memories from your timeline much more easily called ‘On This Day.”

The new feature, which kind of works similar to the Timehop app, makes it easier for users to look back at old photos and other memories which they have shared on Facebook. This new feature is only available to users own Facebook profile timeline.

The content that will be available to the new feature includes past status updates, photos, posts from friends and other things users have shared on their profile timeline wall and this can be from either one year ago, two years ago, and so forth.

Of course this isn’t the first time that Facebook has tested this feature before, but its seems a full rollout is now occurring. The update is being rolled out to both mobile and tablets apps, mobile browser and web versions of Facebook.

To see your On This Day page, you can click on the On This Day bookmark, search for “On This Day,” or visit

You can download the update via the link below if you’re impatient or haven’t signed up for Facebook and want to take advantage of this new feature.
