Facebook: Timeline compulsory for all users?

Facebook: Timeline compulsory for all users?
The ever-so-popular social-networking site Facebook has had a number of massive changes over the years. Its biggest change to-date, Timeline, will soon be rolling out to all users, forcing those who have been reluctant to make the change, encouraged to do so. Read on to learn more about the announcement.

Facebook announced the news on its own blog saying that “over the next few weeks, everyone will get timeline.”

Facebook Timeline was introduced late last year. It’s a new style of layout chronicling your life and social events from the day you were born, should users wish to backdate that far back.

Users also get the chance to use a larger profile photo that Facebook says acts like a photo album cover. Photos and videos will also appear more prominently on profiles, highlighting social events.
Visually, Timeline is the most radical Facebook overhaul yet. For current users, Facebook Timeline will be rolling out in the next couple of weeks, so those yet to try it out have seven days to look at their current profile to decide what they want to share in the new Timeline, and what they wish to hide.

Facebook Timeline has also rolled out onto mobile devices including Apple iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Are you still using the old format? If so, drop us a comment and let us know your thoughts on making the move to Timeline.
