Aaron and Ilana, as children, and a still from their Facebook friendship video.

Hey Ilana and Aaron. Nine years ago today you became friends on Facebook. (Coincidentally, two years ago tomorrow, one of you died. Sucks!)

Here at Facebook, we’re happy to assault you with photos you posted while grieving.  

You seemed to have had a complicated relationship. You only liked each other’s posts 13 times. Interesting, because you did have overlapping passions. Both of your posts frequently featured the words “the” “when” and “Jewish.”

Seems like you probably could have worked on your relationship. Bummer about that cancer!

While there are billions of ways to catch someone off guard, this is how we do it. Because our algorithms are designed to remind you of all the feelings that make you you. When you’re least expecting it!

Let us know how much you liked this. The best way to tell us is by sending us a message. We won’t respond directly, but through another automated video showing up at the top of your newsfeed. We also have a knack for featuring photos of abusive exes. See you then!
