Facebook, in its bid to make it easier for its users to have faster and better experience of the service, has introduced timeline feature into its social site. The service which many see as nostalgic move by the Mark Zuckerberg team has become the most-talked about on online journals and blog sites. The move started five days ago when Facebook first started to test the service on user’s profile. And immediately people starts to see the changes in their use account interface, some of them started by voicing out there opinions about the move. Some group of facebook users complains that the service is not good for them because it will make their account to become vulnerable to social engineering stuffs and others like that (insecurity –ability for hackers to steal information from your social media site).
What are the benefits of this move, what are you going to get in return for this update and what are you likely to lose by using the service? Most of these things are what I will be talking about below in this article.
The new facebook timeline is a tool that facebook recently launched in order to make it easy for people to have all their information on the same spot without the stress of going from one place to another in order to get the best of the site. The timeline feature serves just like a normal stream of news on the go! People get latest information about what their friends are sharing on the site (videos, images, and others without the need of going to the person’s profile page to view them).
Another thing that makes the facebook timeline supreme is, it makes the user’s profile page look more professional than before and allow people to view latest hot news feed better than the formal facebook interface.
Number one most dangerous effect the facebook timeline can have on user’s life is mismanagement of personal information. If you do not know how to protect your information online, facebook timeline will be the best place for hackers to steal your information from, so protect it. You need to be wary of this thing because if you do not, something bad may happen and it might hurt you.
According to what EricLeist, a facebook user, he said, The facebook timeline will allow users to put their entire information (lives) on the site. Mark Zuckerberg says in his speech that you can “tell the whole story of your life on a single facebook page.”
With timeline, you will be able to see your pictures, events, status updates, and much more from your birth up to present moment.
It is true that facebook will allow you to enjoy many cool features but the major thing there is the issue of security and some others. You need to protect yourself on the site by making your account private.
