Facebook Timeline is now required

John Moe Jan 25, 2012

Have you tried Facebook Timeline? The vaguely artsy redesign of your profile page has its critics but they are not being listened to at Facebook HQ. The Timeline feature will roll live to everyone in the next few weeks, the company says, and once you get it you will have seven days to preview and edit before it goes live. If you don’t do any editing, it will generate your timeline automatically. If you like your profile page the old way, tough. If you want to change it back, tough. Coffee is for closers. Second place is a set of steak knives.


There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.
