As the end of year 2016 is nearing, you might have noticed people sharing their Year in Review videos on Facebook highlighting their top posts, number of times they reacted to posts, number of friends made, etc. If you are still wondering how to get yours, worry not. Facebook rolls out the videos batch-wise and if you haven’t been notified of your video yet, it means that your video is yet to be processed.
But that doesn’t mean you have to wait in a long queue to get it created. To speed up the process, you can visit Your Year in Review link and request video by just clicking a button.
Once you click the Request Video button, you have successfully sped up the process and Facebook will begin to generate a video for you and once it is processed, you will receive a notification that your video is ready. It took me around three to four minutes to get my video.
You can now watch your video and edit it if needed by replacing posts and friends appearing in the video. Once you are happy with it you can either save it to yourself or share with your friends on your timeline.
You can also edit the privacy settings to control who can view your video – Friends, Friends of Friends, Public, Custom Lists, etc.
NOTE: If you don’t have enough content (posts), then Facebook can’t make a video for you.
