The New Facebook Profile is certainly a Big Deal, but wait, it’s not a Profile any more, it’s a Timeline. That’s right you can now fill in all the gaps in your digital life and create an online scrapbook for all to see right on Facebook.
The timeline will encourage you to fill in all the major events in your life and will automatically set the events that you have already posted on Facebook into your timeline. Your birthdate, engagements, etc will all be part of your timeline.
This is visually and functionally a drastic shift for a profile that has had continuous changes over the past 7 years.
Learn more about the Timeline in the video below.
The Timeline is currently in Beta, but you can try it now by following instructions near the end of the video by Jo Barnes of the Social Networking Academy.
