What Do You Think of Facebook Timelines vs. Profiles?
Well, all those previous changes and additions sort of shrink into insignificance compared to the major changes announced today by Facebook at the F8 developer conference: the world's largest social network will be replacing all user profiles with a new "Timeline" format, which looks a little bit more like a personal blog than the old profiles did. This includes a big picture at the top, with posts and updates appearing vertical-chronologically beneath it. Of course I have my own opinions about this drastic revamp, but since social media is all about sharing -- and since I am privileged to address an audience that is uniquely attuned to such issues -- I thought I would turn this column over to its readers in the comments section today.
So what do you think of the new Timelines format, and the decision to do away with Profiles? Fire away! (And feel free to write at length).
