Introducing timeline – a new kind of profile
With timeline, now you have a home for all the great stories you've already shared. They don't just vanish as you add new stuff.
Timeline is wider than your old profile, and it's a lot more visual. The first thing you'll notice is the giant photo right at the top. This is your cover, and it's completely up to you which of your photos you put here.
As you scroll down past your cover, you'll see your posts, photos and life events as they happened in time. You choose what's featured on your timeline. You can star your favorites to double their size or hide things altogether.
Filling in the blanks
If important parts of your story aren't included on your timeline, you can go back to when they happened and add them.
Or go to your private activity log. This is where you'll find everything you shared since you joined Facebook. Click on any post to feature it on your timeline so your friends can see it, too.
Add apps to your timeline
Introducing a new kind of social app that lets you show the things you like to do on your timeline – the music you listen to, the recipes you try, the runs you take and more.
These apps also help you discover what your friends are up to. You can even join in if you want: play the song they're listening to, or watch the same TV show.
You can start adding some of these new apps today, but timeline won't be available for a few weeks.
When you get your timeline, you can choose to publish it immediately or take a few days to review what's there and add anything that's missing.
Now, you and your friends will finally be able to tell all the different parts of your story – from the small things you do each day to your biggest moments. What will you create? We can't wait to find out.
Imagine if there was an easy way to rediscover the things you shared, and collect all your best moments in a single place.
