How to Edit Your Facebook Look Back Video

Facebook has revealed a campaign celebrating its tenth anniiversary. This campaign, or feature if you may, automatically creates a specific video for each user based on his/her best moments, most-liked photos, etc. from their account. This feature is called Look Back, and most people’s Facebook feed has been full of them since the feature debuted.

The only problem with Look Back is it selects photos automatically, meaning it won’t always turn out with photos which suit or represent you the best. Or, maybe someone you don’t want is shown in the video. You get what I mean.


Originally, when Look Back launched, it didn’t feature an option to edit the video. But due to numerous complaints of embarrassing moments being shown in the popular videos, Facebook added an ‘Edit’ feature to its Look Back videos which lets you edit them.

Here’s how to edit your Facebook ‘Look Back’ video:

1. Navigate to

2. On the top of the video, you’ll see an ‘Edit’ option. Click on it.


3. This should open many photos and statuses. You can select whichever photos you want to add/remove to your Look Back video to make it better. The video will automatically keep on updating based on your changes.


Editing your Look Back might not be the easiest thing to do, as you’ll first need to remove a photo before adding a different one. Also, you can’t choose just any Facebook photo, you can only select from a wider array of pre-picked photos/status updates. But it’s a useful tip worth considering if you want to add/remove moments from your Look Back video.

  1. Hi Deepanker,

    I’m sorry about that. I’ve notified the editor, he should fix it by tomorrow morning.

    Thanks’s for the heads up,


  2. I haven’t tried it yet since FB is inaccessible from work, but I will give it a shot tonight. Thanks.

  3. Loved the back video. I wish it had different pictures. I’m going to work on changing it . Thanks of the update.

  4. Do I have to keep the “Look Back” video??
    Didn’t ask for it …don’t want it.
    Getting a little sick and tired of FB telling me what I want, and making changes.

    1. Well, you can remove it from your Timeline, but as far as I know, there is really no way of deleting it.
