Facebook Timeline Starts Rolling Out To User Profiles Today [News]

image155   Facebook Timeline Starts Rolling Out To User Profiles Today [News]Today, Facebook will start rolling out their new ‚ÄúTimeline‚ÄĚ profile to everyone. Some of you may have enabled it already, but for the rest, the change is dramatic and will turn Facebook profiles as we know them upside down. Your Facebook profile will now (or soon) take the shape of a timeline going all the way back to the day you were born.

Facebook wants you to use your Timeline profile to tell the story of your life, from today, to the day you joined Facebook, to your childhood, and up until your birth.  Your new profile will boast a huge cover picture, smaller boxes for things like friends, photos, apps and more (you get to choose which are featured), and of course, the timeline.

In the timeline you will be reunited with all your Facebook updates from the day you joined Facebook. This also includes a map of all the geotags you may have added to your posts. This might be cool for some people, but some may be embarrassed about old posts, and wish to hide or delete them. Facebook’s new profile has relatively easy-to-use privacy settings with which users can configure exactly what should appear on their timeline.

For example, if you want to hide a certain activity from your timeline, just view the activity, click the small arrow on the right and choose to hide the activity from the timeline.

You can also add any activity to the timeline, from breaking bones to getting a license, or anything else you want to share.

I personally like the new change…Gives FB a more¬†contemporary¬†feel. ¬†Looks like what a FB – Tumblr Child would be.


It is visually striking. They certainly made a very good move looks-wise.

I’m not too thrilled about the whole thing. I think most peoples Timelines will be too boring for the average person to want to look through, and then there is the whole problem with dating someone and getting to see their past life and loves. Things could get weird.


I really like the new timeline features. Looks like GOogle has to come up with something really good in response to the new timeline feature. dont you think?


Im sick of all the changes.. I don’t want this timeline, and Im ready to leave FB…


Google+ is waiting for you! :)


I’m not sure yet of the look. I DO know that I DON’T want all my Personal info all over the internet! Dislike-Dislike!


Maybe people should be more picky about who they allow to view their profiles now. :)
I think the new profile looks really good, but I agree that it might be too much information. Then again, people can choose what to share.


What exactly are you referring to?




Oops, I thought you wrote that they already did come up with something in response. :) Sorry!

They sure do, and it’s probably right around the corner.
