What if you want to revisit them at any time? You can now. The social site has launched a dedicated Memories section that collects all those souvenirs and anniversaries in a single place. It also includes previous "Memories You May Have Missed" and "Recaps" features that respectively help you catch up on milestones and summarize a busy season.

As you might expect, you can control which moments appear in Memories, so you don't have to relive the pain associated with an ex or the loss of a family member.

  Facebook makes it easier to find and support game streamers Facebook hasn't been shy about its plans to challenge game streaming services like Twitch, Mixer and YouTube Gaming, and it's taking that effort to its next logical step.&nbsp;At the same time, Facebook is giving new streamers more opportunities to find their footing. It's unveiling a Level Up program in the months ahead that will let newcomers earn money from viewers who buy and send virtual items in the middle of live streams. It's somewhat like Twitch's Affiliate tier -- you can still generate an income without a full-fledged partnership.

Facebook Messenger is getting several features timed for the global soccer event, including camera and a few games to play with friends you're talking with. Take a walk down memory lane at any time.

The Memories feature is available either through the Memories bookmark on the desktop or in the "more" section of the Facebook smartphone app. You'll also periodically see it in notifications and News Feed messages. You probably won't visit Memories often, but Facebook likely doesn't mind.

As TechCrunch observed, this is more about encouraging you to post quality material than the amount of time you spend with its content. If this encourages you to get back in touch with an old friend or to reminisce about your partner, Facebook has likely achieved its goals.

Facebook alerts 14M to privacy bug that changed status composer to public .
Facebook has another privacy screwup on its hands.&nbsp;Facebook's Chief Privacy Officer Erin Egan wrote to TechCrunch in a statement: “We recently found a bug that automatically suggested posting publicly when some people were creating their Facebook posts. We have fixed this issue and starting today we are letting everyone affected know and asking them to review any posts they made during that time. To be clear, this bug did not impact anything people had posted before – and they could still choose their audience just as they always have. We’d like to apologize for this mistake”.
