This is a brief explanation of the changes coming soon to everyone's Facebook pages

Timeline?

For those of you that have already seen the new changes Facebook plans to make to its usersprofiles, at least you have a heads up. For those that have not be prepared for some major changes to your main profile.

I recommend for everyone to go ahead and make the switchso that when it goes live in a week or so you have already decided what you do and do not want people to see on your page. And it has everything on it, all your activity, game activity, friends every post for the entirety of your profile.

It really is ridiculous and I believe will end up being the downfall of Facebook. Your news feed stays the same as it has been but the profile that everyone else sees is changing drastically, and I really do not think people are going to like it too much. It is confusing, and complicated, and even less user friendly than the earlier changes.

To get the new timeline just find one of your friends that already has it and click the learn more button and it will show you a preview of what your page is going to look like. All you have to do then is click the “get timeline” button and start editing your page so people can only see what you want them to see.

Well Denise unfortunately these changes are not going to make you like it any better, I have mine figured out, but I still just try to stay off my main profile as much as possible.

I agree, Stephanie, that it is better to make the changes yourself than to have Facebook make them for you. People will have no choice but to make the change over if they wish to stay on Facebook. I have several articles in the works on how to make the changes work for the user but I'm not sure of which site I will be publishing them on as yet.

I believe those articles will come in very handy for some people. As with all the other changes they have made it is not so bad once you get used to it. The main issue is trying to keep stuff off your profile that you don't want people seeing.

I thought my FB time line can be seen by others only.

@ Rathnashikamani Everyone can see your timeline including yourself. If you already have it, just click on your name at the top right corner and you will see it as well

Yeah I don't like it much myself.. I just stick to my news feed now and stay away from my profile unless I have to go on it.. It is still the same concept as the wall only it is done by month and year now.. I don't understand it either
