Facebook Timeline: a new app for your profile

my fb timeline profile

Have you tried the facebook timeline app? It is a new app for your  fb profile so that it would look like the picture above. It will show everything that has happen in your facebook life. It'll be like a scrapbook of your online life. That's my fb profile page, looks nice di ba?  As you've seen it's far different from our usual profile page. Here are some of the things you can see in your new page:

1. Cover Picture - you can put one of your favorite picture that will serve as you cover picture.
2. Profile Picture
3. You can view all your popular posts from each year.
4. Your personal info
5. You can see there your list of friends, albums, pages, and maps
6. You can view your recent activity.

Want to have one like this? I've just read it from techcrunch's website and here's the instructions:

1. Log into Facebook
2. Enable developer mode, if you haven’t already. To do this, type “developer” into the Facebook search box, click the first result (it should be an app made by Facebook with a few hundred thousand users), and add the app.
3. Jump into the developer app (if Facebook doesn’t put you there automatically, it should be in your left-hand tool bar)
4. Create a new app (don’t worry — you wont actually be submitting this for anyone else to see/use). Give your shiny new app any display name and namespace you see fit. Read through and agree to the Platform Privacy agreement. This is the step you need to be verified for.
5. Ensure you’re in your new app’s main settings screen. You should see your app’s name near the top of the page
6. Look for the “Open Graph” header, and click the “Get Started using open graph” link.
Create a test action for your app, like “read” a “book”, or “eat” a “sandwich”
7. This should drop you into an action type configuration page. Change a few of the default settings (I changed the past tense of “read” to “redd” — again, only you can see this unless you try and submit your application to the public directory), and click through all three pages of settings
8. Wait 2-3 minutes
9. Go back to your Facebook homescreen. An invite to try Timeline should be waiting at the top of the page.

You might want to try it. Go na! =) According to facebook, it will be available to everyone in the coming weeks. But for now it will be for your eyes only 'coz I think your friends can't view your timeline.
