The popular Facebook f8 conference is ongoing in San Francisco. Facebook is unveiling huge changes and features to your Facebook profile. Zuckerberg has just announced a brand new feature at its F8 Conference called “Timeline,” a visual representation of your entire life.
With timeline, now you have a home for all the great stories you’ve already shared. They don’t just vanish as you add new stuff.
Timeline is wider than your old profile, and it’s a lot more visual. The first thing you’ll notice is the giant photo right at the top. This is your cover, and it’s completely up to you which of your photos you put here.
As you scroll down past your cover, you’ll see your posts, photos and life events as they happened in time. You choose what’s featured on your timeline. You can star your favorites to double their size or hide things altogether.
Timeline also works with apps, which fill little “gadget” boxes inside your timeline. It’s easy to add an app somebody else has to your own timeline.
“We’re more than what we did recently,” Zuckerberg explained to the audience. “It’s fun and easy to fill out your timeline,” Zuckerberg said.
Stay tuned, features are still unfolding.
