Editing your Facebook Look Back video

Not fond of a photo or two in your Facebook Look Back video? Here's how you can edit it.

This week, to celebrate turning 10, Facebook rolled out a sentimental campaign that automatically created videos for each user, based on photos and posts from the account, called Look back. My Facebook feed has been full of these videos all week.

The only problem with Look Back is that the photos aren't always that flattering or representative of what some users feel best represents their personal Facebook experience. Or, you know, maybe an ex or three are shown in the video.

When it first launched, Facebook didn't allow users to edit the videos, but as of today that's no longer the case.

To edit your Look Back video, visit Facebook.com/lookback. This is the same link you visited to view your video. In the top-right you'll now find an Edit button. Clicking on it launches the editor, allowing you to pick the required number of photos for each of the four different categories.

Editing is a bit tricky, as you'll need to remove a photo before you can add a different one to the video. Make sure to go through and remove the photos you'd rather forget about before adding your favorite moments.
