Facebook to shove Timeline in EVERYONE'S face soon

Tick tock, bitch

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Facebook is now pushing its Timeline feature to all of its users, after carrying out a slow reveal of the dominant social network's makeover to those people happy to upgrade to the new look.

For those stuck-in-the-mud types opposed to Mark Zuckerberg's "frictionless sharing" future – the clock is now ticking.

"Last year we introduced timeline, a new kind of profile that lets you highlight the photos, posts and life events that help you tell your story," said Facebook in an update to its original blog post about the dramatic overhaul to its users' landing pages on the network.

"Over the next few weeks, everyone will get timeline," it added.

The company will give users seven days to preview what information is being shared via Timeline, which chronicles "highlights" of an individual since their "birth" on Facebook. ®
