Facebook has launched a new dedicated page called “Memories” that will keep moments you shared with friends and family over the years at a single place.

It will include posts and photos, friends you have made and major life events over the years.

The new page is an expansion of existing Facebook features like “On This Day”.

“Every day more than 90 million people use ‘On This Day’ to reminisce about these moments they have shared on Facebook,” said Oren Hod, Product Manager at Facebook, in a blog post on Monday.

The new “Memories” page will have several sections.

The “Friends Made On This Day” section will include a list of friends you made on this date in the past, including special videos or collages that celebrate your friendversaries.

“Recaps of Memories” section will feature seasonal or monthly recaps of memories that have been bundled into a message or short video.

“Memories You May Have Missed” section will show you the posts that you might have missed from the past week.

“You can still access your memories through the ‘Memories’ bookmark either to the left of your News Feed on your computer or in the ‘more’ tab on the bottom right of your mobile app,” said Hod.

You can also access “Memories” through notifications and via messages in News Feed. (IANS)

A couple in the US has seen outpouring of support from thousands of people when they set out to raise money on Facebook for reuniting immigrant parents with their children, helping them raise $3.4 million in a matter of three days, the media reported.

Charlotte and Dave Willner, set a target of raising $3.75 million, the USA Today reported on Monday.

The money raised from the Facebook campaign, “Reunite an immigrant parent with their child,” is channelled to RAICES, a Texas-based nonprofit that provides free legal services to immigrants and refugees.

Over 83,000 people have contributed to the cause on Facebook so far.

“The funding we are receiving will save lives. It will keep people from being deported to unsafe countries,” Jenny Hixon of RAICES was quoted as saying.

“It speaks to the outrage the cruel policies at the border have provoked. It honestly gives us hope in what has felt like a very dark time,” she added.

The US administration policy that separates immigrant parents from their children at the Mexico border has drawn criticism from different quarters, including the US First Lady Melania Trump.

According to the the Department of Homeland Security, nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families after illegally crossing the US border in April and May.

Launched in 2017, Facebook’s fundraiser platform allows people to raise money for different causes, including personal causes.

Personal fundraisers allow people to raise money for a friend, themselves or a sick pet directly on Facebook.

The social media giant waived fees last year for nonprofit fundraisers. (IANS)
