With the F8 announcement today came the unveiling of Facebook’s latest redesign and repurposing… Timeline.
I didn’t want to wait for a Facebook invite, so I found a way to get the Timeline profile now… hopefully this means I’ll have the time to make it look pretty and organized before the public launch (September 29th?) because it looks pretty bad when you first get started.
It’s not available to the public yet, but it is in Beta mode… and here’s how to get it for yourself:
– start a new Facebook app under the “Open Graph (beta) category)
– return to your profile and activate your ‘Timeline’
– publish now, but only developers will see the new profile (everyone else gets the old one until Sept. 29th)
I don’t like half of what they have now, and they took away features that I USED!
Which features did they remove? I’d really like to know, for a future post on “Dead Facebook Features, we knew ye well” …p.s. please tell me you’re not mourning the ‘Poke’ ?! Haha 🙂
If they took away Poke, I’ll be righteously pissed.
