Facebook will soon let you edit your “A Look Back” video. This video feature was launched on Facebook’s tenth anniversary. The “A Look Back” video grabs a few photos throughout a user’s history on Facebook and compiles a montage. This video went viral and spread on Facebook.

However, some people resisted sharing the video because Facebook did not provide a way to edit the photos selected for the video. The “A Look Back”video did mention an edit function that said “Click Edit Your Movie below the video player. Use the checkmarks on your photos and other stories to adjust whether they appear in your movie.” However, there was no button placed there. That button should be coming soon.

“We will be launching an Edit feature soon that will allow people to change moments in their movies or update the ones they shared. I don’t have exact timing at the moment, but this will enable people to remove a post from the movie that was pre-selected and change it to a different one,” stated a Facebook representative in a message to TechCrunch.
