Facebook Timeline view

Facebook Timeline view

Timeline is currently being rolled out to all accounts (watch out for the change if you haven’t been switched over yet). To coincide with that Facebook have announced Timeline Movie maker for making movies from the timeline feature.This adds an interesting narrative element to Facebook, and adds functionality you may have looked to image apps like iPhoto, Live Photo Gallery or Picasa for, or the venerable  Photostory.

Timeline has been an opt in feature up to now, but is about to be made the way Facebook works for everyone, replacing and combining your profile and wall. If you support people who use Facebook be prepared for some confusion and a bit of a learning curve. When you get switched over you have 7 days to set up the what appears in your timeline (content that was much less visible may now appear in your main public view) before it is made your public face – but this will be made public in 7 days whether you make changes or not.
