On This Day Preferences

Over the weekend I was talking with a friend and the conversation turned to the feature on Facebook referred to as "On This Day". This features is where Facebook reminds you of events that happened on a particular day. There are some negative thoughts people have about this feature that tend to happen. Either that day had tragedy in it, a life event that you prefer not to remember, or is in relation to a person that you no longer want to be reminded about. Today we will delve into this and explain how to filter based on either a specific date or a person.

  • This feature is available to everyone and can be found at https://www.facebook.com/onthisday. If you are not already logged in you will need to log into your Facebook account.
  • In the top right you will see Notifications and Preferences.
    • If Notifications has a checkbox on it that means you will get notifications of events that are happening. If you want to turn this feature completely off click it to remove the checkbox and you are done. If you want to set a preference then you will want to click on the Preferences option.
  • Filtering works only for current friends and people who are not blocked by you already.
  • When you click on the Preferences you are able to filter on either People or Dates. We will cover both below. If you have any filtering being done it will tell you how many on this screen.
    • People
      • Click on Edit to the right of People
      • Start typing the persons name and select them from the list
      • Click Save
    • Dates
      • Click on Edit to the right of Dates
      • Click on Select Dates
        • The allowed date range is from January 1, 1900 through December 31, 2099
      • Enter the Start Date
        • The allowed date range is from January 1, 1900 through December 31, 2099
      • Enter the End Date (this can be the same as the Start Date)
      • Click Done - After this you can continue to add more dates by clicking on Select Dates.
      • Click Save
  • Now to make your changes committed click on Done

After time if there is a Date or Person you no longer wish to block you can go through this same process and remove them. Next to each Person and Date is a small X that allows you to remove the item.

CEO / Code Ninja
 Send an email

John Marx

John has been an entrepreneur and pusher of all things “normal”. He was brought up where a handshake is as good as any word and even more important than any legal speak. John believes in giving back and giving people more than they expect. This is the foundation and basis of JM2 Webdesigners & Marketing. The prices will shock you, the amount you get will shock you even more, and the skills his entire team brings will completely amaze. He has built a team of experts that are talented, young, and efficient. Each one has the characteristics of the company in wanting to see a small business grow and each one goes above, and beyond which makes John beyond proud of them.

So why is John considered the “Code Ninja”. It’s isn’t because people fear ninja’s (they should). They will fight until their last breath defending, achieving the mission, and helping (in this case small businesses). John believes in very surgical strikes to help a business grow using agile methods that change rapidly, in ways people don’t expect, and with a relentless passion to achieve greatness.
