Facebook Stops Posting Photo Memories Of Your Ex

Ex Memories IconHave you ever had photos of your ex show up on Facebook? Apparently enough people had run into the problem and were angry about it (some angry enough to create a group to protest). Fortunately, Facebook has fixed the problem.

According to an update posted to the group, which was first pointed out by Josh Constine, Facebook is no longer displaying ex-boyfriends and girlfriends. Sam Odio of Facebook posted a comment to the protest group stating, “Hi All – I’d like to let you know that we’re listening to your feedback. The photo memories product no longer shows tagged photos of your friends if you were previously in a relationship with them.”

The pain that was caused by seeing images of your ex show up as “memories” could definitely be annoying. Fortunately, if you had your relationship previously set to “in a relationship” with that individual, and that’s no longer the case, Facebook will stop showing such memories. Was this a feature that had been annoying you?
