Facebook Timeline - Evolution of Profiles
Since the beginning of Facebook, your Facebook profile has become a place where user tell share their story. People use it to share everything from the small stuff, like their thoughts on an article, to the most important events of their lives.
Now Facebook is about to come up with a new feature “Timeline” which will enable you to organize and sort all your important events, acts and memories by the time they happened or occurred and share this Timeline profile with your friends & family.
To some it sounds good and to some who were already concerned about the trend of putting up all the minute to major details on social network, now got a new reason to worry about.
So now you must be interested in knowing about the launch of this feature. Well, earlier the full launch of Facebook Timeline was scheduled for October 1st 2011 but now you have to wait till Wednesday as Facebook delayed the launch of these Timeline profiles after it got sued by a small Chicago based company timelines.com which claims that Facebook Timeline is a copy of their website and it threatens their business.
Currently more than a million people are using timeline by enabling developer’s access.
Now the users can still sign in through the developer’s access but timelines.com wants Facebook to tell them the number of people using timeline by this developer’s access. Facebook will completely launch timeline once the case sorts out.
Timeline on Facebook is a rich format scrapbook where you can post your time to time updates while timelines.com is a website which creates a sequence of historical events like a war or some important event with rich format content. But the base of filing a case is that timelines.com got a trademark for the word “Timelines” for US.
