Facebook New Feature - Timeline

Facebook’s f8 conference, CEO Mark Zuckerberg took the stage to unveil the next evolution of the service. He calls this feature Timeline.“It’s the heart of your Facebook experience, completely rethought from the ground up,” Zuckerberg says, noting that they’ve been working on it all year. “Timeline is the story of your life.”

What Zuckerberg showed was a beautiful new Profile that is much more visual than anything Facebook has done before.“We’re more than what we did recently,” Zuckerberg explained to the audience.It was then that Zuckerberg unveiled Timeline, the revamped version of the Facebook Profile. It’s a way to show off who you are, what you do and where you’ve been. It’s a complete design overhaul that makes a visual history of everything you’ve ever done, all the way to when you were born.

Currently, Facebook does not notify you when someone unfriends you on the social network. That may soon change with the upcoming Facebook Timeline feature, which will be replacing your current Facebook profile.

Trying to display all of this content was a major design challenge, Zuckerberg noted. How do you do it all on a single page? Well, all of your recent content is shown in a new grid-view. But as you go back in time, it’s more about summarizing your content to display the most important content. The farther back you go, the less you see — it’s just the key moments. “This is the magic of how Timeline works,” Zuckerberg said.
