Facebook opens up Timeline to users
Facebook’s 800 million users can now access the site’s Timeline feature, which turns their profile pages into a virtual scrapbook full of big photos, memorable posts and life events. People can add pre-Facebook memories, too. The Timeline goes back as far as the user’s birth date. The Timeline is blank for now, but Facebook hopes people will fill it up by scanning old photos and adding dates and places of life events. It’s even possible to add a status update from 1984 - two decades before Facebook’s 2004 debut.
