Facebook Memories there to remind you what a twat you used to be

FACEBOOK’S ‘on this day’ feature exists solely to remind you that you used to be an embarrassing arse, it has been confirmed.

Although appearing to be a charming reminder of years gone by, the feature actually leaves users mortified about awful fashion choices and posts full of toe-curling emotional ‘oversharing’.

Facebook user Emma Bradford said: “I’ve had Facebook since my teens, so most of my ‘memories’ are snaps of me with weird highlights and an embarrassing loose tie.

“I’m not only dressed like a wanker but in most of the pictures I seem to be all over horrible, pimply, dickhead boys. Still, at least it distracts attention from my fucking awful poetry.”

Fellow user Tom Booker agreed: “I’ll always wonder how many of my now-adult friends have seen I spent a full month posting 15 times a day about Rage Against the Machine becoming Christmas number one.

“That and trying to look hard while smoking a badly-rolled spliff. I feel a bit sick just thinking about it.”
