Apps Bring Your Timeline to Life, claims Facebook in the run up to enforcing TIMELINE.
What about you! Are you ready to publish your timeline? Remember: Your timeline goes live on …. on … O God … I don’t know… WHEN… or how soon. Well, I’m actually AFRAID.
BUT you still have a chance to review what’s there, highlight or hide whatever you want and even add new social applications.
Facebook also claims that adding apps to your timeline helps you to express who you are – a runner, foodie, traveller, music fan, movie buff and more.
Actually, timeline apps are meant for the activities you want to share with friends.
This may help you discover apps through your friends’ app activity, which appears on their timeline, News Feed and ticker. If you’re looking for a specific app, you can search for it by entering its name into the search bar at the top of all pages on Facebook.
REMEMBER, when you give an app permission to add activity to your timeline, that activity may also appear in ticker and News Feed.
Depending on your privacy settings, your app activity may also be visible to other people using the app or website. If you want to remove an app story from your timeline and activity log, you can do so at any time.
HOW TO CONTROL app privacy and settings??? Okie okie… There is an in-line audience selector on the app install screen that controls who can see your activity from that app. After you install an app, you can view and manage its settings on your App Settings. So ……… Ready!!!!
AND if you ask me, I liked this (apps) picture (below) very much… so much so that I captured it from THE video Facebook showed to me, which video also inspired me to blog about the apps!!! ))))))))))
YES…. the moment Timeline would be introduced… (whether you like it or not)… you would be sharing your life story with a new kind of profile. And you can’t help it. It’s COMING.
Preview your timeline: Once you get timeline, you’ll have 7 days before anyone else can see it. This gives you a chance to get your timeline looking the way you want before other people see it.
Decide what to highlight: To help you get started, your timeline includes some of your top photos and stories. Hide or highlight whatever you want and add anything that’s missing.
Control who sees your stuff: Only the people you originally shared a post with can see it on your timeline. If you want, you can go back and change who sees a post, delete it or just hide it from your timeline.
!!!!!!!!! & YOUR APPS ——- The film you quote — The songs you have on repeat — The activities you love — Now there’s a new class of social apps that let you express who you are through all the things you do.
Facebook Timeline is the new profile page design that the social network website Facebook launched in September 2011. Facebook Timeline changes the default profile from a list of your most recent updates to a complete summary of your entire life since birth. It includes photos, videos, status updates and locations you have visited. The new Facebook profile is divided into two main columns, with a line down the middle representing the passage of time.
Timeline uses an algorithm to assess the most important moments of your life, which can then be edited to your satisfaction. Unwanted updates can be hidden from the Timeline – with ‘star’ or ‘pencil’ option. The new profile pages are thought to constitute one of Facebook’s most extreme redesigns so far, completely re-imagining what a social networking profile can be. Timeline also means that Facebook now bears fewer similarities to Google+, a social network from Google which currently uses the standard format of showing the most recent updates first.
Facebook made Timeline available for testing on September 22, 2011 and the response to the new layout has been mixed since then.
AND DO NOT FORGET THAT — Facebook has 800 million users. And till date — Facebook has added 3,000 apps… O My God, R U ON TIMELINE? If your answer is YES, then are you thinking of — “How to Get Rid of Facebook Timeline and Actually Bring the Old Facebook Back” ??? Let’s pray.
