Another Episode in my Facebook Love/Hate Relationship

I have written before about how much I love Facebook, yet I hate it all at the same time.

There is another installment of this: The Facebook Timeline

I got my timeline several months ago as a special release to developers only.

I love the idea of it.

However, If you play games, its not so great when it starts.

The reason for this is when others go to your wall, its hard to fine all of the game posts.

Its wonderful for just pictures, status updates, and the new addition of LIFE EVENTS.

I LOVE this new addition.

I went through and added all of my biggest life events; like my wedding, when my son was born, and when I started NighLon!

One of my favorite things about it is the cover image (the top photo).

Facebook is slowly rolling it out to everyone.

When its time for you to switch over, you will get a drop down from Facebook asking you to switch to the new profile.

Follow their directions and you will be good to go.

You will have 7 days to play around with it before everyone else sees it, luckily!

(If you want it now, and have not received the invitation; comment below, and I will let you know how to get it now)

Features of Facebook Timeline:

You can delete stories you don’t want everyone to see (the timeline goes back years)

You can highlight special days in your life, and even choose a photo to represent it. (just click the edit icon)

You can even add significant events in your life.

It may take a bit of work, but once it is set up, it looks really awesome.

I am really enjoying the timeline (even though I did not when I first got it). I can’t wait until they start the timeline for fan pages.

That will open so many new possibilities for marketing.

Have fun…
