F8 2011! Zuckerberg Reveals Entirely “New Facebook” with Timeline- The Story of your Life!
F8 2011 is the Facebook’s developer conference, which kicked off by Andy Sandberg introducing himself as Mark Zuckerberg and demoed their newest feature – the Slow Poke, a poke that completes within 24 hours to reach the person being poked, plenty of time to be cancelled by the evidently drunk sender.
Then Zuckerberg himself acquired the stage about 5 minutes into his tedious rant to get clapping and Mark himself continued on with the usual highlight listing.
Half a billion people signing on in one day, for example. Then he went on to note that apps and depth of engagement were the next “way of the future,” this future having very much to do with the way you present yourself with Facebook – the new way being Timeline.
The first five minutes of your social network dialogue, that is, with the next 15 minutes going to “what I did recently” also known as your status. It lasts there (except for those that tab “more” perpetually if they like), until now.
Timeline is actually the story of your life all your stories, all your apps, and a newish way to express who you are. This new way “the story of your life” is incorporated in Facebook as Timeline feature. It works by showing everything you’ve achieved in your life, everything you’ve acquired, shortening more and more, making your content minor and minor as you reach further into the past.
To get to a certain year, you can click on a year in your upper right-hand corner. Once you get to a piece of your past that you want to see more in-depth, you’ve only to hover over a piece and it’ll expand. All of the events in your life (on Facebook) made simply accessible.
Timeline has the ability to be filtered down to one type of content. For example, you can view photos like a gigantic gallery of every photo from your past.
A Map Timeline has also been incorporated in new Facebook that shows places you’ve been, this linking to posts from that part of your life. Timeline will be prolonged (in detail) durin recent F8 2011.
