Facebook Timeline The Tour Of No Return - Go, Your Timeline Is Now Live!

Last January, Facebook officially announced that they will "roll out" Timeline to all users. As anticipated, I think, this is it. It means they will not limit Timeline in Facebook pages, rather they will mandatory execute your user FB account to Facebook Timeline format. Non-Optional. What the…?

It’s ok. Go Facebook. Even if I still don’t like Facebook timeline for personal account, for some reasons, go ahead. It’s all yours. Convert it. You’re the boss.

To those who are still in old profile formal, just a piece of note, once you turn it on, you can't turn it off.

I can’t wait for March 22. I pushed the preview button and it says…

Welcome to Your Timeline — PreviewRight now, only you can see your timeline. This gives you a chance to:1. Review what's on your timeline now, and add or hide whatever you want.2. Click Publish Now or wait until your Timeline goes live on 22 March.

You have your own reasons why you like Timeline and immediately update your account. Me? Well, I just don’t like the flow of personal information in the new profile timeline. I just don’t like the ideas of putting your own history from the event you were born. What I mean is that, will you really spend time visiting your friends’ profile and reading through their life history since they were born? Come on!  

So what is Facebook Timeline anyway?

Facebook Timeline is a section of a Facebook user's account that replaces the Profile and Wall pages, and merges them together. It shows the story of your life, as you choose to tell it or as Facebook has recorded it, in a visual, scrolling, reverse-chronologically ordered timeline. It's a cross between visual blog and online scrapbook.

And I clicked the tour button, it says…. (These are the 6 Steps Tour to your Facebook Timeline)

1.     Start with your cover
Your cover appears above your profile picture, and it's the first thing people see when they visit your timeline. Choose a unique photo from your life to feature on your cover. Note: Just like profile pictures, your cover photos are public.

2.     See everything in one place
This is where you'll find your info, photos, likes, apps and other stuff — all in one central place.

3.     View all your activity
Your activity log will list all your posts and activity since you joined Facebook. Go here to review things you're tagged in, change who sees individual stories and more.

4.     Rediscover your top stories
This is your timeline. It's your collection of your most memorable photos, events and experiences. Scroll back to the beginning or jump to a specific time by clicking the dates along the right side of your timeline.

5.     Highlight what's important
Hover over a story and click the star ( star icon ) to expand it to widescreen. Or click the pencil ( pencil icon ) to hide or delete the post. Some stories on your timeline appear as dots ( dots icon ). Just hover over the dot to view the story.

6.     Add anything that's missing
Click anywhere on your timeline to add updates, photos and stories about the places you visit. Or click Life Event to add experiences from the different parts of your life.

So since, we're not the boss. click and upgrade your old Facebook profile to Facebook Timeline now. We'll see. I know Mr. Zuckerberg has a lot to offer.
