It’s finally here!
After months of waiting, Facebook Timeline is now officially online.
The feature was first announced at Facebook’s F8 conference in San Francisco and was first rolled out in New Zealand. Now, the largest social networking website is making it available to the whole world.
So what is Facebook Timeline? If you have been living under a rock and haven’t heard of this latest feature, Timeline shows a detailed overview of your life and being able to check out what you did and where you have been up to in a particular point in time, resurfacing ALL the content you have created in Facebook. Yes, and I mean ALL.
Among the striking new features in this profile upgrade is the cover photo which occupies a large portion of the page and allows you to post an image that “represents you best”. It also has a map feature which gives you a glimpse of the places you’ve been to.
Facebook users can access this feature by clicking the “Get It Now” button and start experiencing this upgrade.
For starters, users will have a seven-day grace period to review their own Timeline before it finally goes live after seven days.
