Facebook keeps bringing in new features now and then. Sharing your friendship anniversary is a wholesome feature introduced as a reminder to appreciate your friendships. Facebook compiles an entire video showing your shared memories over the years.
But, how do you share your friendship anniversary video on Facebook with your friends?
There are two methods to check how long you have been friends with someone on Facebook and if there’s a video made for you. One through your “Memories” or “On This Day” option and one through checking your “Activity Log”. You can then choose to share your videos from there.
People will not be able to see your video unless you share it. You can access them on either the day of your anniversary or through your Memories.
Anniversary videos appear in your feed on the anniversary of the day you became friends with someone on Facebook or the day you have listed as an anniversary of your relationship.
Let’s have a deeper look at sharing your friendship anniversary video on Facebook.

The Different Ways of Sharing Your Friendship Anniversary
There are two leading methods for sharing your friendship videos on Facebook. Let’s have a look at the first.
Using the “On This Day” Feature
Step #1: Open Facebook From Your Browser
Open and log in to your Facebook account from your browser.
Step #2: Click on Memories/On This Day
Click on Memories on the left column of the main window. ‘Memories’ is also known as ‘On This Day’ on some platforms.
Any memories you have from the same day will be displayed once you click it.
Step #3: Click on “Watch Yours”
When your video is available, you will see a Watch Yours button to play the preview of your video.
If you click the edit button, you will be able to change the font or order of the images in your ‘Friendversary’ video before sharing it!
You will only be allowed to use those photos you and your friend are tagged in.
Step #4: Share Video
To share your friendversary video publicly or just with your friends, you must click on the Share button below the video. You can choose who can see your video, and if you don’t want someone to watch it, you can restrict the video from them.
However, sometimes you miss the exact date when Facebook curates these videos for you. There’s no need to panic. There’s an alternative way to access and share friendship anniversaries if you’ve missed out on sharing using the ‘on this day’ feature.
Let’s look at another method to retrieve any friendaversary you have missed out on.
