After testing it in beta mode for almost two years, Facebook has finally launched its app ‘On This Day’ today. The app takes users for a nostalgic trip to their past and shows where they were and what they were doing on this day, last year, last to last year and so on. It will also show the entire list of posts, statuses and pictures you were tagged in, on that date. The basic idea to develop this app is to help users looking back through their digital past and enjoy the nostalgia.

As posted by the social networking website in its newsroom, this feature will let you see what content you have posted on the same date last year and will also give you an option to edit it, delete or share it with your friends and followers. The feature will be available for both the web as well as the mobile version of Facebook.
