Facebook's 'On This Day' lets you take a nostalgia-filled trip to the past

The feature works much like the Timehop posts you've no doubt seen on your Facebook news feed, surfacing things that you either posted or were tagged in from a specific date in the past. From Facebook:

On This Day shows content from this date in the past. For example, you might see past status updates, photos, posts from friends and other things you've shared or been tagged in – from one year ago, two years ago, and so on. Only you will see this content unless you decide to share it with your friends.

After checking out "On This Day" for the first time, users also have the option to subscribe to receive notifications whenever there is something to check out.

Facebook notes that users will be able to access "On This Day" on the web, as well as through a menu item in its mobile apps. The feature is still rolling out to users, however, and doesn't look to be live as of this writing.
