The new Facebook Timeline feature converts your past updates and activities into a virtual scrapbook.
At this year’s Facebook f8 conference, CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled the new Timeline feature which will be rolled out to all Facebook users in the next few weeks. Timeline is a tool that algorithmically organizes everything you’ve done on Facebook into a virtual scrapbook. Users are able to view an overall history of all their activities that includes their photos, friends, ‘likes’, status updates and much more. Timeline will also have a ‘Way Back’ feature where users can add details of events pre-Facebook time.
The reaction from Facebook users who are currently testing out Timeline have been mixed. Some users think the new enhancement is great and will allow them stroll down memory lane. While others, believe that Timeline will expose too much of their life to the public. Some couples are already concerned about having to explain past relationship status updates to their current partners or having illicit photos unexpectedly surface.
