Various Facebook Pages claim that you must first like, share, and comment on a post before you can access Facebook’s Year In Review video feature.
You do not need to like, share, or comment to access your Year in Review video.
These Facebook Pages are scams designed to gather large numbers of likes as quickly as possible. Once the Page has collected a large number of likes, it can then be reused to launch other types of scam. Alternatively, it might be sold on the black market to other scammers.
You can see, edit, and share your personalised video at any time you like via this direct Facebook link:
Do not trust or engage with any Facebook Page or post that claims that you must perform steps such as, liking, sharing, commenting, or filling in surveys before you can get your Year In Review video. Always access your Year in Review video via facebook.com/yearinreview2016.
If a post or Page wants you to click a link other than the one shown above to access your video, do not proceed.
Facebook has published information about the Year in Review feature in its help files.
