Grab a piece of paper.

I want you to manually look back at your entire year... all the way back to January 1, 2016.
Make a true and full list of your best moments. What are you proud of? Write it all down... on a piece of paper!
With such a rocky end to the year, it's critical you look back. Give yourself the time to do this reflective exercise. I bet you'll be surprised by how far you've actually come and all that you've accomplished in 2016 (but not really or fully acknowledged).
Once you've done the manual labor, compare how the algorithms below (based on highest engagement) or your own content strategy compares to your full year in review.
If you so choose, I want you to share your discoveries. Take a look at the guides and examples below... then share your 2016 best moment(s) in the comments.
Facebook Year in Review
Despite my lowest valleys at the beginning and end of 2016... it's been an incredible year. Took a moment to *really* look back on all that happened this year (through Google Calendar, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook). I'm feeling #grateful and #blessed 😆—actually really EXCITED now for all that can and will happen in 2017!
