Here’s my Facebook movie. Algorithm or magic?

facebook movieToday on Facebook everybody started posting their “Here’s my Facebook Movie” with the invitation to create YOUR Facebook movie here: https://facebook.com/lookback

Facebook has created personalized slideshows for users, but this project marks the first time the company has made customized videos. A small team at Facebook spent the last few months crafting the videos and ensuring the company had the resources to render them for most of the network’s 1.2 billion users.

At first I thought the Facebook users chose the images and posts used in the video. However when I saw mine, I was blown away with how family-centric the movie was. I went through at least 40 other Facebook movies posted by 3600 plus Facebook friends and somehow, most of the videos are very sweet and focused on family.

I would love to know the details on how the FB process in creating these videos.
