Q&A: How do I turn off ‘memories’ on Facebook?

Dear Sofie,

I wonder how I can turn off all the memories that are popping up every day in my Facebook feed. Some of the reminders are totally stressful for me; posts from painful life experiences. It’s not good for my mind to see them all over again.

Please, can you help me?

Answer:
I agree with you, I find many of the memory reminders painful as well. I didn’t want them in my feed every day and turned them off.

To turn off notifications:

  1. Go to facebook.com/onthisday
  2. Click Notifications and select Off

You can also click on ‘Preferences’ in the right-hand corner and adjust dates and people you don’t want to see. This is a function that I had no idea was there, even if I’m pretty Facebook savvy.
