In celebration of its 13th birthday on Thursday, Facebook released personalized videos celebrating each user's friendships. Within hours, Type A users across the world were scrambling to figure out how to edit Facebook Friends Day videos — or at least I was, and I'm sure most of my fellow perfectionists were as well.
Like last year's animation, the video stitches together a bunch of your friends' profile pictures and photos from your time on Facebook. This year, they all come together to form a dancing silhouette with some slick moves. The company also says Messenger will highlight friendship-themed GIFs for a "fun and easy way to start conversations with friends."
You'd think it would be a harmless, if cheesy, idea, but every year, Facebook's algorithm manages to unearth some memories you'd rather forget (read: photos of your ex). Or maybe there's a prominently displayed photo of you chugging a jug of wine in Buenos Aires that you'd forgotten about. I don't know your life, but you do you.
But whatever your reason for wanting to edit the video before you share, I have good news: Facebook has made editing the content ridiculously easy, probably because everyone makes fun of the algorithms all the time. Here's your step-by-step guide to editing your Friends Day video so it's every bit as fabulous as you are.
