I don’t have it yet. I think I’m going to wait till they make me switch. You know, delay the inevitable. 😉 I really just don’t feel like weeding through all of my old information to determine what to actually publish to my Timeline.

I’ve had it for a LONG time – basically since you had to do this weird create an app thing to get it. I really like it. I love how organized and streamlined everything is and I also really love getting to display one photo on my page in addition to whatever my avatar/profile picture is.

And honestly, everything that shows up is stuff you already posted to facebook. It retains the same previous privacy settings – so if you posted a note in 2008 and blocked Grandma from seeing it then, she’s not gonna magically be able to see it now. I guess I just see it as, if you deemed something acceptable to make public then, why fuss over it being accessible now? If someone sat there and clicked back far enough in your old wall, they’d have found it then as well.

I re-actived my FB last night just to try it out, and halfway through attempting to organize  my Timeline I got fed up and tried to get my old facebook layout back. I couldn’t figure out how to go back so I think I’m stuck with it now. It is really cool but going through 4 years of information and picking and choosing which bits I want to share seemed so tedious.

I’m a little confused by it but think I’ll get the hang of it 🙂

@MissCalifornia: Oh, I understand that my privacy settings won’t change. But I’ve had Facebook for almost seven years, and I’m willing to bet that the things I posted about seven years ago aren’t necessarily things I want to be reminded of now.

It’s like going back and reading your diary from your teenage years. Embarrassing! Tongue Out

Darling Husband has it and loves it. I haven’t tried it yet and I don’t know if I plan to. I don’t like change.

I’ve had the new layout since it was introduced for Developers. I wanted to convert early so I could clean it up and remove the bits that I didn’t want to be reminded of. I’ve also had mine for 7-8 years and I didn’t want it to be easier for my Mom and aunts to find my drunk status updates–and embarassing pictures. It took me a couple of days to understand how it works, but I love it.

Sooo true! But not only are you reading it, you’re sharing it with everyone on your friends list! There will definitely be lots of hidden stuff on my timeline that I don’t want people seeing.

@Gemstone: Haha, true. I had a LOT of really emo posts from my first year on facebook (freshman year of college) that were quite embarrassing to re-read.

@Grizz: WHen there’s something you want to delete, put your cursor to the right side of what you want to delete and a box will appear. Click it and select delete. It’ll ask you to confirm the deletion, but it is easy peasey once you get it.

I switched a while back and went ahead and edited everything to my liking, so that when everyone else gets it, mine is already set up to show what I want it to show. Basically the only thing I have public is my engagement relationship change. Other than that, its friends only. And I removed things from my timeline that I didn’t particularly want to be reminded of (i.e. ex-best friend all over my dang timeline)
