Facebook timeline is the latest offering by this social networking giant which allows you to completely personalize and display your profile. Unlike the current version where your profile image is restricted to a small corner on the side of the page, you now get a wide open space as the ‘cover’ area where you can upload a unique image that is closest to your heart or one that represents you best. This is the first thing that any visitor or friend visiting your page can see and hence it will be the focus of your timeline.
‘Your Stories’ on Facebook timeline is the next important area where you can share and draw attention to your favorite posts, photographs and memorable events of your life. This is where the story of your life unfolds from the beginning to your present and even your future. A ‘star’ or ‘remove’ option is available using which you can either star your favorite and precious moments which will then get blown up widescreen or remove those which need to be hidden.
Applications are plenty and galore on Facebook timeline using which the world can see your favorite movies and songs. There are so many social applications that showcase your real personality and help you share who you really are, your interests, hobbies and activities with the outside world. Your favorite songs and music is always available on timeline so that your friends too can enjoy the song along with you. Once you opt for timeline, you will be given a period of seven days during which you can personalize your profile the way you want others to see it. During these seven days, your timeline will not be visible to others giving you an opportunity to make as many changes as you wish.
