The whole world will get Facebook Timeline within “the next couple of weeks”, but what does it actually mean? Redline Company will help you figure out this new visual journal online, so don´t be afraid.
With the new Timeline you can present your life story in chronological order. Once you opt for Timeline there is no way back and you have only 7 days to change your profile before everybody is able to see it.
The first thing people will see is your cover. Make sure it is unique, because it is similar to a profile picture. All your activities are shown since the day you became a Facebook user, so you can easily rediscover the most important stories or most popular pictures. The importance of a story or picture is decided by the type of message, the reaction your friends gave – and you! You can mark what you believe is important by clicking on the star icon.
Why is everybody so afraid? You shouldn´t be! If you feel that the Timeline is exposing too much of your private life you can hide or remove what you don´t want to show by clicking on the pencil icon. You have privacy settings for everything that appears on your Timeline, which makes it easy to regulate who sees what on your new Facebook.
The change from the Facebook we know to the new Timeline will happen gradually over the next few weeks; however it is not an option and ultimately all Facebook users will have to embrace it. Redline Company suggests that you try to get the best out of it, because it is a refreshing new way of displaying your information.
