Prepare for Facebook’s Timeline

Filed under: News,Social Media — Brian

Facebook has announced that their new Timeline feature for profiles will be going live by force to all users over the next few weeks. There is no ability to opt-out. Be sure to take a look through your Facebook history and remove any embarrassing posts or photos from years ago that you don’t want Facebook to suddenly make much more prominent.

From Facebook:

Last year we introduced timeline, a new kind of profile that lets you highlight the photos, posts and life events that help you tell your story. Over the next few weeks, everyone will get timeline. When you get timeline, you’ll have 7 days to preview what’s there now. This gives you a chance to add or hide whatever you want before anyone else sees it.

  • Ah, yes. Definitely remember to remove those pics of you making out with your sister before the whole world sees them.

  • Honestly, Facebook is sucking it hard with this change. Ppl used Facebook because it was nice and simple. If they’re going to do this, at least let ppl optout of it rather than forcing it down our throats. Makes me want to go to google+, except noone’s there.

  • I love the new timelines look, but ya they should let people keep the old facebook if they want.

  • Also don’t forget that the timeline is PUBLIC BY DEFAULT! You have to change it to private if you don’t want the entire world seeing it.
