With 2016 almost ending, a lot of us have shared out best moments of the year as we look back to what happened this year and look forward to the beautiful moments that we hope will happen in 2017.
Of course, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was also expected to post a year-ender video to celebrate 2016 – and this he did to feature some of the biggest moments the world has seen this year. While there were tragic moments, such as the death of some key personalities, most were fun-filled and wonderful moments that touched the world or caused a social media storm.
There were also key political and historical moments that made it to the video, including the election that divided two nations – one in the US and another in the Philippines!
While many expected Trump’s winning moment to be included in the video because Zuckerberg is, after all, based in the US, a lot of people were surprised and quite amazed that the election of a small, third world country would make it to Facebook’s biggest moments of 2016!
“And even when we seemed at our most divided, we were still connected.”
Check out the moment here as well as other biggest events in 2016, as shared by Mark Zuckerberg:
Every year we share a video with some of the biggest moments on Facebook that year. 2016 was a difficult year for a lot of people around the world. But what gives me hope is that even our darkest moments were a little brighter because of the connections we shared with each other. As we head into 2017, I believe more than ever in the power of this community — to teach us, to console us, to celebrate with us, to open our minds and to help us move forward together. Here’s to a healthy and happy 2017!
