You must be well aware of the Timeline profile that Facebook announced at the f8 developers meet last year. If you aren’t, the Facebook Timeline is basically a beautiful and colorful representation of your life and time spent on Facebook. During the launch, Facebook enticed the crowd with a Facebook Timeline movie made of a certain users profile. However, not many were stoked with the idea of having their whole life, i.e, photos, status updates, friendships, wall post, videos and everything else posted on a single page and open to all your friends.

And many are going to be furious once they will be forced to change to the new Timeline profile and let go of the old look. Yes, Facebook is doing that. Slowly, but it’s happening and there’ve been a lot of negative reaction to it. But, the social networking giant knows that people will still come to the site and gradually start liking the new profile design.
