Get A Sneak Peak At Your New Facebook Timeline Profile And Get Yours Early

Posted in Computers,web by Joe Colburn on the September 22nd, 2011

Nothing creates progress like competition. Of course, when we’re talking about all the changes Facebook continues to roll out, many just grumble and shake an angry fist. Sometimes I agree, but today I was actually impressed with a rather large update Facebook is about to roll out to your profile page.

Facebook Timeline
(click to see it full size)

This new Timeline view has things rearranged to display all your posts in a timeline. The cool part about this is that you can jump to any spot on the timeline with the timeline navigation bar on the right of the profile. When in your own profile you can more easily hide content that you don’t want to show up and feature an item by making it span the full width of the timeline.

Another obvious change is the personalization updates, starting with the large header picture at the top. For my profile, I chose a picture I took of Phoenix at night but you can use any image from your uploaded photos or upload a new one.

Additional customization includes the ability to pick and choose what applications, etc to display. Although I need more quality time with this update, I like what I see so far. I don’t spend a lot of time looking at my own profile but I see some usefulness to this layout when viewing other profiles.

Get your new profile early

Want your update early? If you do, there’s a back door in to start playing with it before Facebook rolls it out to everybody next week. One of my favorite YouTubers, Household Hacker made this how-to video.

If you update your profile, be sure to comment below with your Facebook link.

    It’s starting to look more like a blog site than a social networking site.

    I think this new Facebook timeline is really cool. Facebook is recently making lot of changes to its UI. I think it is because of the launch of Google plus. Before that Facebook was getting little bit of slowness and they are back now !

    I was tempted to get it early but I was afraid of any possible bugs that have not been ironed yet. Definitely can’t wait for it to release officially as it looks really good and packed full of useful features.

    I dont see any difference in your profile from mine. Guess that is because the only one that can see it is you like he said.

    I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free.
