Facebook Timeline: How it works

After the f8 developers conference the main attraction that came out was the Facebook will get a new Timeline. In other works you are getting a whole new profile page and you had better like it. well it is not really all that bad and has a way of converting all Facebook users into curators of their Facebook lives. With the new profile you have space which is being called a cover. Therefore right on the top of your profile you now have more space to place a large photo of yourself, as a welcome sign. The Facebook timeline has been divided into three parts.

What is Facebook Timeline and how does it work

1. The Cover: Represents a wide and open space to fill in with your best image. Will definitely become a big hit with Facebook users as people find more and more creative uses for it.

2. Your Stories: This section allows you to highlight your most memorable posts and photos etc. This can be from the beginning of time when you started using the service. Now if you have been a longtime user of Facebook and there are posts in there you do not want your current friends to see, you can get rid of it. Facebook will give you the option to choose what shows up. With this service you can see everything you have done from the time you joined Facebook and arrange things in such an order that when people visit your profile they can see a timeline of your events and all that you have been up to on Facebook. There are privacy options so no problem. Let your creative juices flow. You can choose to highlight certain likes and friends and a whole lot of options.

3. Your Apps: Show your friends which movies you watched on Netflix, what music you have had on repeat and a whole other range of Apps. This part of your profile will be to share all your activities related to movies, music and travel etc. Pretty neat and this is really social sharing.

How to watch Facebook f8 Developer Conference Live Online

September 22, 2011 The facebook f8 developers conference will be happening in full earnest. With all the updates Facebook has been rolling out you can bet that the best has been stored for last. Bloggers and News-sites have been waiting in earnest for the conference as the latest and most happening changes being brought to Facebook will be made known. It is like the great revelation kind of like Moses and the burning bust. Sorry about that comparison it sounds like a tablet is being launched. However this is the launch that will have the world buzzing and this is because most of the know world as it is now has some form of Facebook affiliations. You either have a fb account know someone who has and knows someone who does not like Facebook.

The f8 developers conference will change all that and we do not know whether for the good or the bad. Either ways you want to watch this live online. See if you want to go to San Fran for the conference, entry will cost you $400.

Difference between Top stories and Recent stories on facebook

Facebook have added the new feature to news feeds and you are now familiar that the news feed is divided into two parts, Top Stories and Recent Stories. You might be wondering what the difference is and if there is any difference at all. Well the stories that you see in the top stories, which happens to be the first and top most part of your news feed, are all the stories and updates that Facebook has marked as important. Basically these are posts and updates that have received quiet a lot of traction and will usually be accompanied by a lot of likes and comments. Recent stories are that ones that are being shown as they happen and yes, they are in chronological order. There are top stories among these too. Basically top stories are marked by the light blue share on the left-hand top corner of each post. You can also mark a story as important, to mark a story as important you would need to click on the light blue shade on the top left-hand corner to mark as important. An example can be seen in the image above.
