How To Enable Facebook Timeline | Activate New Facebook Instantly

Facebook Timeline is a major overhaul to the interface to your social network profile. Indeed an innovative way to list your activities in timely manner. It’s a completely redesigned profile page with all things which Facebook has known about us since long time.

Users can see what their status updates were dating back to the very day they joined the social network.

As users scroll down the page and back in time, Facebook tries to surface only the updates that will still be relevant years later. Using clues like keywords (big job news) or the number of likes or comments a post received, Facebook can attempt to know which updates will still mean something to us years later.
