Steve Jobs’s life laid out as a Facebook Timeline [video]

Whether you’re fan of Apple products or not, there is no denying the influence Steve Jobs had on the world. Simon Lau — a freelance Web, iPhone and iPad developer — built a tribute to Mr. Jobs using Facebook’s Timeline feature. Facebook’s Timeline replaces a user’s traditional profile page with life events, check-ins, new friends additions, photos and more, all listed in chronological order. Lau’s Timeline of Jobs, which was promptly removed by Facebook only to later be restored, features an array of photos and life events that highlight the Apple co-founder’s time on Earth. Hit the break for a video showcasing Steve Jobs’s Timeline. More →

Facebook Timeline now live for all users

Facebook Timeline now live for all users

Facebook on Thursday activated its Timeline feature for all users of the social network. Facebook’s Timeline totally revamps a user’s profile page and lists events, such as check-ins, new friends, photos and more, in chronological order. We registered as a developer and have been using the Timeline feature for the past few months. We love that we’re able to go all the way back to 2004 when we first joined the social network to see early posts, but it’s a bit tedious to go through years and years of content to delete or hide posts that are no longer relevant. Facebook Timeline also allows each user to set a unique “Cover” photo that sits at the top of a user’s page and is independent of a profile picture. The Cover feature makes each page feel different and allows a user to add a unique flavor to his or her profile page. Overall, it’s definitely one of Facebook’s better updates in recent memory and we think most users will like the new features. Timeline was originally unveiled in September during Facebook’s annual F8 conference. More →
