I’ll be brief because the links below contain more details about Facebook’s Timeline.
WHAT IS IT?
Facebook users will automatically be presented with a new look called Timeline. It is a new scrolling visual scrapbook-like feature that will replace the profile page. It will show many if not all of your previous posts and pictures.
WHEN DOES IT START
Timeline was first released to Facebook software developers at a conference this past September. Starting on January 5, 2012, Facebook users will get a pop up notification about Timeline. Eventually the profile pages of all Facebook users will be switched over to the new Timeline look.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
Got any embarrassing photos or posts? You need to clean them up. After switching to Timeline, Facebook gives you 7 days (preview period) to delete anything you do not want people to see.
Please go to the links below for more information about Timeline, especially if you are trying to get into a college or looking for a new job. Many studies report that an increasing number of schools and companies are rejecting candidates because of what they found online.
