Facebook says sorry for Year in Review feature

Facebook has apologised over its Year in Review feature after some users complained about the images chosen to sum up their 2014.

Eric Meyer described the feature as “jarring” and “wrong” after he logged on to discover a picture of his six-year-old daughter, who had died earlier in the year, was selected.

The photo album, which is automatically generated, includes photo uploads and wall posts that received the most “Likes” over the past 12 months.

Facebook say it is looking at ways to improve the app to prevent similar incidents from happening again.
