Judge Refuses to Grant Temporary Injunction Over Facebook Timeline [paidcontent.org]
A federal judge refused late on Friday to grant a temporary restraining order to Timelines.com, a Chicago company that says Facebook’s timeline service may “eliminate” it. In return, Facebook has promised to limit access for now and to hold back on a full launch.

But the judge’s order also said Timelines can try again to stop the rollout, and revealed that Facebook’s new service already has 1.1 million ‘graph developers’ with 100,000 to 200,000 more signing on every day.

In refusing to grant the temporary restraining order, Judge Edmond Chang noted that Facebook has pledged not to broadly launch the feature before the parties appear in court again on Tuesday. He noted that the service is for now available only to the 1.1 million people (and counting) who have volunteered to be “graph developers.”

Can non-developers access the Timeline yet?
