Facebook Timeline has been on the back burner, but is finally being rolled out to the public, starting in New Zealand. Every time Facebook changes the way news feed and profiles look there are those that are fans and those that protest and claim to be about to drop off facebook forever. But do they really ever? Here is all you need to know about the new Timeline.New Features
Timeline is going to be a significant change from other reconfigurations Facebook has done before. This timeline will basically be a online scrapbook of your life from birth to present, via everything you have previously posted on Facebook, events you have attended, and pictures you or others have tagged of you.
The most prominent feature is the addition of a cover photo at the top of the page. Users can change this to whatever they'd like it to be.
Important events and dates in your life are recorded in the timeline and you can even add pictures and words to make the dates more meaningful. This timeline will be two columns and your top statuses, friends, photos and top stories will be featured at the top of the page.
Events and places you have been will now be included in a personalized map showing all of these things that are added to Facebook or things you have already included previously. This will be powered by the already existing Facebook Places.
One great thing about the Timeline is you can move around different things to prominently place the applications and photos that are most important to you.
