Facebook is redesigning its “Life Events” feature with useful updates that can help users spruce up the posts marking the important moments that they want to remember and share.

Facebook introduced the “Life Events” feature as a way to help users share and celebrate the most important milestones with friends and family.

“Just as they are in real life, life events on Facebook are distinguished from other everyday moments. To ensure these moments stand out, even more, we’re redesigning this feature to give you more ways to commemorate your life events and help your friends see these important milestones,” David Harris, Product Manager at Facebook, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

As part of the overhaul of the feature, Facebook would be providing new options, including animated photos and videos.

And those who do not own images would be able to choose from a wide range of art from Facebook, the social networking giant said.

“You can also include photos from the people or Pages you’ve tagged in the post, like your partner in a relationship or a new school or workplace,” Harris said.

Facebook will also now alert your friends directly when you’ve shared some life events, it says.

For certain types of life events — like changes in your current city, work, education, and relationship status — your friends may receive a notification to let them know about the news. This ensures they won’t miss the update if they were just casually scrolling their News Feed. And it’s a way to make sure the event gets seen by your broader network of Facebook friends — including those acquaintances whose updates don’t regularly show in your News Feed, as Facebook’s algorithms have determined you aren’t close.

In addition, when you react to a life event someone else posted, with a like, wow, heart, etc., Facebook now shows all the other reactions from friends alongside your own.

Perhaps most importantly is that Facebook is finally giving life events a place of importance on users’ profiles.

While the feature for years has been touted as a way to remember significant events, it’s actually been fairly difficult to relocate your older life event posts from years ago. With the update, however, life events will have their own dedicated section on user profiles. (You can opt to hide a life event here by tapping the “…” button then selecting “Hide from Timeline,” if you choose).

This will give people visiting your profile for the first time a way to get to know you by way of the most important moments you’ve shared through this feature. That may not be something everyone is comfortable with, though, so you’ll want to check to see if there are any older life event posts you need to hide or delete.

The updated life events are rolling out worldwide on iOS, Android and desktop beginning today, and will be completed in the days ahead.
