Facebook's 'Year In Review' forces some to relive tragedies

Facebook's 'Year In Review' forces some to relive tragedies
Facebook / Year in Review 2014

Can you believe it's almost 2015 already? I swear, I blink and a whole year whizzes by. It's really neat to look back on the past year and see what you've accomplished, and Facebook wants to help you do that.

Have you seen that "Year In Review" feature popping up on your Facebook News Feed? A lot of folks enjoy revisiting their biggest moments, but some others are furious at Facebook. That's because a so-called "design flaw" forced some to revisit tragic events.

Facebook seems to land itself in hot water a lot of the time, but in this case it was a nice gesture that backfired.

The "Year in Review" from Facebook uses an algorithm to find your most-liked and commented-on posts, pictures and videos and showcase it in a little album for you to look back on the past year. For some, it's a nice way to look back on their year and share it with others.

But for one man, it was a reminder of a tragic loss in his life.
