Facebook have recently announced their Timeline, which displays every event that have occurred in your Facebook lifespan. It looks kind of like a story book of your life (really the online documentation of your events on Facebook). In order to turn your timeline on, you have to follow these steps:
1.Log into your Facebook account.
2.Type developer into Facebook search box, click on the first result generated (It’s an app created by Facebook with few hundred thousand users), and add the app.
4.Just create a new app. You don’t have to worry about it as you won’t be actually submitting this for anyone else to see/use). Give your new app a display name and namespace. Kindly do all the verification stuff.
5.Now go to your new app’s main settings screen (you will see your app’s name near the top of the page) and look for Open Graph header, and click the Get Started using open graph link. Create a test action for your app, like read a book.
6.After the get started link you will be dropped into an action type configuration page. Change some of the default settings.
8.After that go back to your Facebook homepage, an invitation for timeline will be waiting for you at the top of the page. Now you can check out your timeline.
- You probably shouldn’t try this stuff unless you’re somewhat of an actual developer. Expect some bugs.
- You will be the only one to see your timeline at first (unless you decide otherwise), eventually it will automatically go public after some days.
- When you login into Facebook account from another machine, Timeline will automatically become disabled on all of your machines.
- You’ll also need a “verified” account for one of the steps, which means that you need a credit card or phone number attached to your account.
