How to Stop Facebook From Showing Bad Memories

Facebook has a new feature, On This Day, that shows users' posts from a year or before that can be re-shared on the timeline.

Remembering weddings, births, graduations and vacations is great.

But what about divorces, deaths and horrific traffic accidents?

Who wants to remember those events?

Fortunately, Facebook has a preference page to allow users to filter friends and dates from showing up in On This Day.

Here's how to set your preferences:

1. Go to
2. Click the "Preference" icon in the top right.
3. Click "Edit" on either one of the filters, People or Dates to create filters to prevent memories from being shown.
4.  When finished, click "Done"

Facebook On This Day Preferences

And that's it.  Memories from the friends you've added to the People filter or dates you've added to the Dates filter will not be shown in On This Day.

While you are on the On This Day page, you can also set Notifications to either "All Memories" or "Off".
