Yet Another Facebook Story: Introducing Timeline

Your Facebook experience is about to become more visual.

In a keynote speech at the company’s f8 developer conference in San Francisco, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg described Timeline as “a great way to discover all the things people have done their whole life.”

Timeline’s aim is to allow users to easily browse through the history of their activity on Facebook all the way back to the day they were born. “Timeline is a completely new aesthetic for Facebook,” Zuckerberg said.

Is this one of those things you didn’t know you wanted until it was made available to you? Sounds like it. And what does Facebook get from the redesign? Clearly, more data that can be sold to marketers.

    I don’t think I’m going to be posting more private information on facebook.
    I ‘unliked’ everything I had ‘liked’ and I took off any keywords they could use to profile me.

    I won’t be using timeline
