Facebook Quietly Announces MAJOR
Facebook Timeline Changes for Profiles
On March 13, 2013, Facebook quietly announced a BIG update:
“UPDATES TO THE TIMELINE ROLLING OUT NOW.”
Full news release accessible here and the Developer specific news on Facebook Developer Blog.
This is the “home page” of any Facebook user (not Pages). This is where a person updates their Cover image, has links to their About information, Photos, and Friends, and most importantly where it lists their most recent Facebook status updates and activity.
WHY ISN’T THIS BIGGER NEWS?
Hard to say. Last week Facebook held a press event to announce a revamp of the News Feed and yet this roll-out hasn’t really been arrived for the majority of users. However, the Timeline update was announced one day ago as “We are beginning to gradually roll out these new features to users and developers today.” (emphasis added).
