The NEW Facebook Timeline

There has been SO MUCH hubbub lately over Facebook and its new News Feed.  Then, today was the F8 where the spoke about even MORE changes.  As most Facebook users, I was skeptical.  I was even a bit angry and frustrated by the change at first, myself.  However, I got over this frustration and realized that they were trying to make these changes for a reason.  I would adapt and cope and learn to love them like I have the past countless updates.

BUT! When I heard about the announcements at the F8 I became EXCITED!  I was interested in this new way of viewing profiles, or seeing things in a “timeline” with photos and featured content, and a scrapbook of your and your friends’ lives.  I was so fascinated and ready for this to launch.  Then, to add to my joy, I found that Mashable posted info and steps on how to get the new Facebook Timeline NOW before it rolls out at the end of this month. So, of course, I jumped on it.  And I’d like to share my experience with you, or more so, my images! Because, after all, we’re more about aesthetics and how nice it looks and how easy it is to use anyway, right?  That has to have something to do with Diffusion of Innovations (and by has I mean, IT DOES.).  So, here it is.  Here are four screen shots of my *NEW* Facebook Timeline, which will only be seen by me until it rolls out to all users at the end of this month.  However, my only regret is that I didn’t “take the tour” first before I set it.  Maybe I’ll have this opportunity again when it officially rolls out…
