The wait is finally over. After three months of long delay (and trademark issues), Facebook has finally rolled out its new profile to all users on its network. Facebook announced this news in a blog post a few hours ago.
For those who are not aware of what “Timeline” is all about, then let me brief you a bit. Timeline is a new layout of Facebook profile, which allows you to tell your life story and shows a detailed overview of your life on Facebook. It also allows your friends to check out what you did (updated) at a particular point in time very quickly and easily. Basically, it creates a sequence of your time to time events that can be accessed later on.
Facebook introduced the new profile design way back in September during its F8 conference. It comes with a new feature called Activity Log, which gives you full control of what appears in your Timeline. You can perform actions, like delete, hide, or update a status.
How to Activate Timeline on your Profile:
Facebook also notifies that when you upgrade to the new timeline, you will have a seven days review period. During this review period, your timeline will be visible only to you. You can make all necessary changes and modify things the way you want. At the end of the seventh day, the timeline will go live automatically and can be viewed by all your friends. However, if you wish to publish your timeline anytime during the review period, then you have the option to do so.
You can choose to see how your timeline appears to a specific friend or the public. To view how your timeline appears to other people, click on the gear menu on the top (next to activity log) and select “View As”.
Timeline will also be available on Android devices as well as the mobile version of Facebook m.facebook.com.
