Facebook Timeline Now Available Worldwide

For quite a long time, we have been hearing different reports on Facebook Timeline feature. However, after quite a slow but gradual rollout, the social networking giant has finally made its Timeline feature available to public.

The new Timeline feature is in fact a comprehensive makeover of Facebook’s user profile pages, first announced at company’s f8 developer conference back in September. The Timeline doesn’t only detail your interests and personal info, but a thorough overview of your life on the Facebook. It will enable you to check what you have been doing at any specific point of time.

Facebook has equipped its Timeline with a tool named the ‘Activity Log’ that allows users to control the content appearing on their Timeline. For instance, they can ‘promote’ a certain post to featured status, even they can hide it from the Timeline or delete it altogether.

Unsurprisingly, the radical makeover of the profile page once again met with a strong criticism by many users like we have seen with earlier changes made in Facebook. However, there is a group of users that like the new Timeline. The users who disliked the changes claim that the Timeline will make their personal info more accessible than before and could lead to identity theft.

It is worth noting here that the Timeline is currently on a seven day trial. The idea is to give users enough time to review all the content appearing on the Timeline and decide which particular information you want to share with your friends. Those who upgrade to Timeline, their new profile will ‘go live’ after the end of seven day review period.

Facebook has also made its Timeline available on Android devices and mobile version of Facebook, i.e. m.facebook.com.
