Looking back on your Facebook timeline from 7+ years ago

total cringe-athon innit!

Well at least it shows you’ve grown. I deleted my entire Facebook history last year when I was making a transition in my life and it was great. Feels good to wipe the slate clean and push on forward. There’s an extension for chrome which can remove all posts on your wall and all the posts you’ve made on others’

Not even on it pal.

I imagine it’ll be like a photo album though. Seems good at the time, cringe for the next 10-15 years. Then glad you’ve captured the memories and look back fondly at how you used to be.

and how you’ve involved a huge company abusing your private data and trust


Even if I’d post stuff on there now (not that I’d dare), I’d inevitably cringe myself to death in a few years time.

I cringe at basically everything I do and say, when looking back (and instantly afterwards). It’s a potent source of self-loathing.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels like this.

Not sure I’m any help to you there man.

Think I’m a bit older than you (and if I may say, for me…) so have strength/courage in my conviction that even if what I say or do comes out not as I planned I still know I had the best intentions behind it… Or what I thought at the time was sound reasoning.

Never been a big fan of photos of myself… But I’m sometimes captured unawares and I look alright .

Not really to do with photos (well, I guess it is a bit). Just the occasional stupid, cringe-worthy timeline post. Particularly between the ages of 16-21 (I’m mid 20s now, although I probably come across much younger).

Yeah, I still haven’t learned to accept this. I feel that what I intend doesn’t matter at all. I just always assume most people think I’m weird or/and a cunt, and that’s all that matters. That’s the mindset I’m stuck in.

*If my intentions are good, but I come across bad

Nowt wrong with being weird.

and the strength/courage comes from just being nice to everyone… so you know you’re not a cunt, f everyone else in the a. *shrug

can’t be arsed to scroll that far but I like looking at pictures of me as a comedy teen with daft haircuts

7 hours*

Just use the ‘on this day’ bit to cull loads of old posts

The only thing I delete are comments made on my posts by people who I used to like but now despise.

I was 35 seven years ago so it’s fair to say my FB feed is pretty much a constant.

So glad no social media when I was that age.

Makes me glad I only joined 4 years ago.

was just posting shit about the world cup, including this great video:

How about…not.looking?

what i find most weird is seeing interactions with people i literally have no recollection of whatsoever

On this day 7 years ago, @poptimusgrime posted on my wall. What a lovely DiSer ~sighs~


There’s a lot of song lyrics and the like, and horribly drunken pics – the kind I wouldn’t use FB to share now because of all the people I have on there now that I didn’t 10 years ago.

I had one of those “10 years ago today…” on FB today actually, and it was a pic of my Art Brut wall in the flat where I lived at the time. Aww.

Not for me! Wanna know Why?
