I’m terrible at remembering things, and when I say terrible, I mean I’m a hopeless case. I also don’t keep a calendar which means I have no idea what all I did this past year. To rectify this problem, at the end of last year, I exported all of my Facebook statuses and photos, and between my Facebook media and many tweets, I was able to create a list of all the big things I did in 2013. My 2014 list will be released soon, but in the meantime, here’s how to create your “Major Happenings of 2014” list:


  1. Click on the profile icon (top right) and click “Settings.”
  2. Click “Request your archive.”
  3. When your download is ready (it takes some time), Twitter will send you an email with the download link.
  4. Once you get the email, click the “Go now” button and download the .zip file.
  5. Unzip the file and click “index.html” to view your archive.


  1. Click the drop down arrow on the top right of your screen (assuming you’re logged into FB).
  2. Select “Settings.”
  3. Click “download a copy of your Facebook data” which is located below your General Account Settings.
  4. Click “Start My Archive.”

Once you have both your Twitter feed and your Facebook timeline downloaded, go through and reminisce about 2014.
