What if We Had LinkedIn Wrapped?

You’ve probably seen your Spotify Wrapped by now. Honestly, big fan of my 2020 playlist – even though it’s slightly embarrassing – but I’m left wondering what a year in review would look like if we branched out towards other platforms.

Sadly, my bank in the UK does a year in review. While I don’t need to be reminded of how much I’ve spent on takeout coffee this year, I’m truly glad I’ve mustered up enough will and discipline to save £2 this year. What an achievement. My bank also tells me what my favorite grocery store was, where I ordered the most takeout, and other abysmal information that I honestly don’t need. But imagine if your LinkedIn gave you a year in review of how many jobs you glanced at and didn’t apply for because of a single look at the requirements? What if Facebook told you how often you were tagged in photos that you just didn’t need circulating the internet?

Personally, I’d love to see a year in review – a word cloud, if you will – of every word I’ve uttered throughout the year. That would be astonishing. Perhaps this is why people journal, but the year-in-review options are endless. What did we eat the most of this year? How much time did we spend sleeping? While I fully recognize that these stream-of-consciousness thoughts might evoke a bit of existential worry, it would be majorly interesting to see what we actually accomplished in this fascinating year laid out for us.

What if we referred to other countries in their own language?
