Facebook Timeline page

Finally the waiting is over. Facebook today announced that Timeline is now available for everyone worldwide.

Timeline is a new type of profile page which allows users to add any information they feel worth sharing with friends or public like when they born, when they graduated and many more. Not only adding major life events you can also add any special memories at certain point of your life. Unlike other traditional way of managing your social networking profile, Timeline offers a slite different way to manage and showcase your profile.

Facebook announced Timeline in September 2011 at Facebook f8 conference. Since then it was available for Facebook developers to write and test their new applications which targets this new feature. Dreamsrain has provided steps to activate Timeline for other users. Many of our readers activated the Timeline and most of them deactivated. Recently officially started roll out of Timeline and the first to get was New Zealand. Facebook Timeline is getting mixed feedback from users. Major concern with Timeline is privacy. As Timeline encourages users to add lot of information of their life may lead to identity theft.

Users need to be more careful from now onwards when they are adding any information to their Facebook profile. Activity log feature lets users easily manage what should appear on Timeline. You can also use impersonation feature to find out how your Timeline appears for your friends and public.

Maybe those other kids from Harvard really did invent fb, and now the truth is coming out? It’s so geeky it’s painful. Timeline is way uncool.

  37. Ariel Dexie says:

    I don’t like the way they emphasize the unimportant events by making the post so big. It also takes much time to load than the older profile design. Sad thing you can’t disable the final version or it is really hard to remove it.

  38. sadie says:

    i HATE timeline sooooooooooo so so so much i cnt stress it enough. PLEASE help me find a way to get rid of it

  39. sadie says:

    apparently everyone is getting timeline by January 1 so even though it is AWFUL! we all have to deal with it

  40. hali says:

    i don’t like the new timeline!

  41. sara says:

    There are a lot of dislikes for timeline, why are u making this a big deal. Put a deactivate button. Do have to regret downloading it all the time!!!

  42. I don’t like Timeline because it’s not amatuer-friendly. If you don’t take professional looking pictures like all the beautiful glossies they have in the FB ads, or know how to do attractive layouts like a graphic artist, you will end up with a jumbled looking mess. On top of that, you can’t even disable it.

  43. reenna96 says:

    I have fallen pretty to this unwanted timeline! It has all of my statuses since I joined Facebook! I don’t particularly want people read about my thoughts and feelings posted so long ago! Shame on FB g for forcing us into this!

    • GodHelpUs says:

      Yeah but that does not fix the problem because the timeline is there .. it just give you the illusion that it is gone.. if you use any other computer the damn timeline is still there. I have my identity stolen have went thru hell this needs to stop and reverse.. because I will disable facebook and quit forever~

  57. chinno says:

    Hi, need some assistance please on how to switch my facebook account back to its original format. i accidentally activated timeline since I want to check the new version but then I decided that the original format is much better and its not giving me any options to use the old facebook format again. Thank you.

  58. shaggy says:

    why dont they make a developer switch button
    so that keep both but you have the option of seeing both when ever you want
    a great example of what im talking about is similar to what zynga did to there
    farmville game now theres 4 farms and theres a pull down for the 4 farms
    and no matter if log out the last page you were on stays the current one
    i think this is more efficient for everyone and we all wouldnt have to worry bout it
    it would be choice to stay where we want or view what we want and everyone could be happy
    i know facebook can do it zynga did

  59. maimai says:

    I don’t like the timeline either I thought I can revert it back so I tried it now i am totally pissed
    if only google+ got more users

  60. Belmin says:

    please help get rid of time line :(

  61. Savvas says:

    I’ve been searching around the web to find a way to disable timeline from Facebook but here i found my answer. It cannot be disable. Maybe the facebook team should consider the thoughts of its user before making any changes. They should give the options to the users whether or not to install timeline to their profiles because lets not forget that in order to be alive and running (and making profit out of it) facebook needs its users. now most people don’t like the new timeline and facebook should stop forcing their updates with no questions asked! Forcing someone will definitively drive them away thus loosing users and in the end loosing profits from all the adverts!! Give the people the choice!!

  62. Tracey says:

    please help me get my old profile back. I do not like timeline

  73. Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

  74. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Appreciate it
