Facebook has launched a new feature to the site which allows select users to reminisce about what they and their friends were doing on a year ago on a day.

The ‘On this day’ feature, still in its experimental stage lets select users to see a feed of updates from friends exactly as they appeared a year ago including a list on the right-hand side of the page that details some other big milestones or events from the month.

A Facebook spokeswoman confirmed that the site is testing a feature that will show users content from their News Feed ‘from a year ago today’. The reason why the feature is available only to a select few is because Facebook tests the new feature with a select group before rolling it out to all the users.

The report added that before the New Year, Twitter and Facebook had rolled out features to let users relive their best moments from 2012 on the respective networks.
