Facebook has said it's making Timeline available everywhere.
Facebook Makes Timeline Avaliable to All, Worldwide [blog.facebook.com]
When you upgrade to timeline, you'll have seven days to review everything that appears on your timeline before anyone else can see it. You can also choose to publish your timeline at any time during the review period. If you decide to wait, your timeline will go live automatically after seven days. Your new timeline will replace your profile, but all your stories and photos will still be there.

If you want to see how your timeline appears to other people, click the gear menu at the top of your timeline, and select "View As." You can choose to see how your timeline appears to a specific friend or the public.

I don't like the new look. It sketches me out to see what everyones done 5-6 years ago. EVERYTHING is recorded. Let me rephrase that. Everything was recorded and is now displayed to public.

This was the case before Timeline (keep scrolling down and click "Older Posts"). With Timeline it's easier to go back and batch edit who sees that information with the "Activity Log." And they're getting better at this, too, by allowing you to review it for a week before you publish.

Great to see the Facebook's Nicolas Felton [feltron.com] acquisition put to good use, and prominently.

If you don't want to have everything recorded I think you'll better leave facebook. It scares me too but I cannot simply avoid that social media.

Ive been using the timeline for a while now, and I sort of like it. Looks ok, and you put photos and events into their actual time, which I've been doing, though there are some little bugs. But it really does take all the information and display it so readily that its kind of scary to know people can find out so much about you so easily. The look also has a similar feel to MySpace.

Though I (and many others will like it), I have a gut feeling this will trigger the start of the end of Facebook.

Personally, I think Facebook should be more about information now, not information of the past. Better integration with live video would help.

So far, Timeline only applies to an individual's profile, but most people spend their time on the wall, which is still about "information now." An individual's profile has always been about that individual, of the present, and of the past, and Timeline does a much better job of presenting this with new ways to feature and display events, photos, and data.

I think their next step is to take what they learn from Timeline and apply it to the wall. The wall has a much different use case than the profile page, but could benefit from some of the cool things they've done with the profile page.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld Northwind and Kate_Oranum.

The new timeline is going to be by default, whether you like it or not.

Over the next few weeks, everyone will get timeline. When you get timeline, you'll have 7 days to preview what's there now. This gives you a chance to add or hide whatever you want before anyone else sees it.
