Are you annoyed by the "Memories" feature on Facebook? I am. I can understand the reasoning but I don't want random stuff getting picked out and shown to me.

It'd be like letting a random stranger come into my house, rummaging through my photo albums and picking stuff out to shove in my face. No thank you.

At least I haven't been burned as bad as some people who have had "happy" photos of deceased friends or family bringing up bad memories.

Currently, there is no way to turn it off or opt out of it. But there is a work around:

1: Go to
2: Find the settings button
3: Find the dates filter
4: Set the dates you don't want memories from

So if (for example) something bad happened in 2011, you could set the date filter to not show anything from Jan 1st to Dec 31st 2011. Then FB won't show you any Memories from 2011.

I wanted to turn Memories off altogether, so I set mine from Jan 1 2005 (as far back as it goes) to Jan 1 2016 (in the future at the time I wrote this).

This effectively turns Memories off. Just need to update the future date as I catch up to it.
