Facebook Releases Stunning New Profile Design: Timeline- The Story of Your Life [VIDEO]

September 22, 2011 | By | 22 Comments">22 Comments

Facebook announced another major change today at its f8 developer conference.

“This is the heart of the Facebook experience, completely rethought from the ground up. We’re calling it ‘Timeline,” said Zuckerberg, “Timeline is the story of your life: all your stories, all your apps and a new way to express who you are.”

And with that, Timeline was launched with these major features….

Timeline is a real time stream that posts events, photos, news, and information from apps that Facebook feels are most relevant to you and your personality. Think of it as an “automatic scrapbook”.

Within timeline, your information is presented through blue and grey dots. Blue dots signify important events and content while grey dots are ranked as less important. If you want to add on to an event that happened in the past simply insert it at the right time.

Timeline also lets you create a “cover” where you can choose what image to feature that best captures the spirit of “you”.

Thankfully, users have complete control over who sees what parts of their timeline.

The entire feel of the timeline is pretty impressive.

Lastly, timeline will plot your most used apps, maps, and other experiences. Many of these are available today and will continue rolling out over the next several weeks. See all the changes here. 



P.S.- I was able to get a sneak peek at what Timeline looks like. My profile is updated and you can view it below:
