Facebook yesterday started rolling out its new Timeline profile, which was unveiled three months ago at the company's 2011 f8 developer conference. We're talking about a global launch, both on desktop and mobile.
I don't think everyone has tried it out yet, but I believe you, a Friending Facebook reader as well as general ZDNet reader, probably have. You've also likely checked out my Screenshots: the Facebook Timeline and the Open Graph gallery and my How to get started with Facebook Timeline article.
As such, I want to get a gauge of your first impressions for the last 24 hours. So I'm asking you, my readers: do you like the new Facebook profile, Timeline? Please vote in the poll below:
I'd also like to ask you all again in about a week, especially given that Facebook is giving users a 7-day review period. I'm curious if the results will vary dramatically or not.
Facebook calls Timeline "the evolution of your profile." While the old Facebook profile is completely based on showing all the latest updates, Timeline is meant to highlight all the important updates of your whole life. Previously, the only way to find these updates is to click on the Older Posts link at the bottom of someone's profile. Timeline is supposed to change that by letting you pick what's important.
This is arguably the biggest change to the Facebook profile since the social network first launched seven years ago. I know it's hard to limit your opinion to three choices, so feel free to give more details in the comment section below.
