Facebook Timeline

Share this Post >>

This week earlier, Facebook introduced the Timeline Feature in mobile and browser version. Timeline is a new look to the Facebook profile. With this new feature, you can turn your entire profile into an entire history of all the years that you have spent on Facebook. Timeline is very handy to browse through your past history.

What’s New In Timeline

Currently, the any user’s profile of Facebook shows the lasted posts on the wall. If we want to view the older posts, we have to scroll down & then click on Older Posts to view the older updates. On the other hand, with the Timeline, we can easily browse through all our updates. An index bar is placed on the right hand side of the wall, through which we can easily navigate into the earlier years.

Cover Picture

This is a smashing feature of Timeline. You can choose an unique image which will be set on the top of your wall. This image will stretch across the entire page’s width. Your profile picture will be shown on the left hand side bottom corner of this cover picture.

See Everything In One Place

Just below the cover picture, on the right side, you can view all the Info of the user. And on the left side, you will find users Friend list, Subscribers, Likes, Photos, Notes etc… Thus you can find everything in one centralized place.

Activity Log

Here you will find all the records till date from the day you have joined Facebook. When you will click on Activity Log, a new frame will open. There on every post, you will find 2 menus. The 1st is for changing the privacy settings. And the 2nd is for keeping it on Timeline. From the activity log, user will be able to feature, hide & delete their posts.

Highlight What’s Important

In the new profile, the posts are divided into 2 columns. Thus the size of the post with respect to the older profile has reduced. But if you want to widen it and show it as an important update of yours, then just click on the star icon on that update.

Facebook has given a 7 days review period for its users. So now if you Activate Timeline, then your profile will automatically get converted into the newer version in 7 days. Once converted to Timeline, then there is no way back to go to your old profile view.

Is this an intelligent move by Facebook to keep it up in the market of social media? Did you all like TIMELINE? Do post your views on Timeline via comments.

    This is kinda unfair, since they introduce timeline, I find hard times in enabling and now anyone can have their profile with Timeline at a simple tick of a button :(

  6. While timeline is great, I didn’t like the idea that you can’t change back to your original profile.

  7. While intrigued initially, I don’t like it. It’s not so easy for the eye to jump back and forth for the the latest updates, and I don’t really want people to see updates from a few years ago. I’d rather those stay buried. I prefer the more streamlined, basic profile.

    I deactivated my facebook profile because of the timeline. I hate it with passion. I do not want ppl to be able to see my posts from previous years. I couldn’t go back to my old profile (which I find extremely unfair of facebook) therefore, I decided to leave. I am pretty sure that I am not the only person deactivating the account due to the timeline. Thank you facebook for making me go away…
