Everyone is buzzing about Facebook Timeline – the new feature that looks back on your Facebook life. The Facebook team is still working out the bugs and recently fixed a glitch that allowed users to see who had unfriended them.
Despite these little bumps in the road, the Facebook Timeline is set to roll out in the next few weeks.
So what exactly is in store with Facebook Timeline? Here’s some news from the official Facebook blog.
“Since the beginning of Facebook, your profile has been the place where you tell your story. People use it to share everything from the small stuff, like their thoughts on an article, to the most important events of their lives, like the photos of their wedding or the birth of their child,” it states.
“Back in the early days of Facebook, your profile was pretty basic – just your name, a photo, where you went to school…stuff you’d cover in the first five minutes you met someone. Over time, your profile evolved to better reflect how you actually communicate with your friends. Now you can can share photos of what you did last weekend, and updates about how you feel today.”
It continues: “The way your profile works today, 99% of the stories you share vanish.
“Timeline is wider than your old profile, and it’s a lot more visual. The first thing you’ll notice is the giant photo right at the top. This is your cover, and it’s completely up to you which of your photos you put here.
“As you scroll down past your cover, you’ll see your posts, photos and life events as they happened in time. You choose what’s featured on your timeline. You can star your favorites to double their size or hide things altogether.”
What do you think of Facebook Timeline? Are you ready for it or are you over all these changes to the site?
