Facebook Year in Review

Posted by Joe on Wednesday, January 8, 2014, In : Personal Life 
There are so many moments and relationships that I have to be thankful for in 2013.  Until now, I did not realize what a great job Facebook did of capturing many of those moments for me:

Facebook recently presented the option to post a Year in Review (you can make your own here).  It is a very cool feature that takes the content you have shared throughout the year that has received the most interaction, and then compiles it into one individualized timeline.  I was thrilled to be able to remini...
