Why can’t I find my Facebook Memories?

If you can’t seem to find your Facebook Memories anywhere, even after following the above steps, then you can try a few things to make them appear. 

The first thing you’ll want to make sure you try is updating the app to its latest version. Then, try restarting your phone if that also doesn’t seem to be working in your favor. 

If even after you try the basics you still can’t find them, try checking the list of friends or dates you might have excluded from your Memories. To check on this, follow these steps:

  • Open the Facebook app. 
  • Click on the three horizontal line menu bar in the bottom right-hand corner. 
  • Click on “Memories” from the list that appears under shortcuts. 
  • Click on the Settings gear in the top right-hand corner of the screen. 
  • Under Hide Memories, see if you have any people or dates that you might’ve accidentally checked off.
