Get Facebooks new Timeline feature now.
Yesterday Facebook announced some really big changes in the way Facebook is going to operate. The interface is changing and there is going to be a new timeline that is like the storybook of your life online. The aesthetic look is nice and appealing and the main thing Facebook wanted to accomplish was you will get a good “feel” for who the person is by looking at their timeline. The timeline will be heavily drawn on images and pictures and will highlight the important events in your life on a year by year basis.
It seems like Facebook is taking a blog approach to the site.
The other big thing they announced is open graph and how that will fit into how we communicate. Everything will be social and streamline. If you listen to a song on Spotify it will show up on the ticker in the top right corner and then I can click it and listen to the song. Take that thought with running, cooking, photos, everything will be easily shared and accessed between you and your friends/audience.
The biggest question I have is how does this affect privacy concerns people have?
Also, the new Timeline feature is coming out soon BUT you can bypass the waiting and get it now if you have a developer account. It is really easy to set up and this site has done a pretty good job at explaining everything. It took me all of about 5 mins, and if I can do it you can too.
There are 8 basic steps
Step 1: Access Facebook Apps Developer page. If you are already using Facebook Developer Apps then its fine. Or else it would ask you for “Request for permission”. Click “Allow”.
Step 2: Now you are on the Default Page of Developer Facebook Apps. Click 0n “+ Create New App” button on the Top Right Side to create new application.
Step 3: Once you have done that, provide a “Display name” and “Namespace” for your newly created App. And in next step, confirm the security code.
