The timeline gives you a beautiful ticks off a year when someone roles back. The timeline adds another app that also shares things with your friend which you read online, thus, enabling people to get useful information through friends.

Your time is almost up.
In December, 2011 the new Facebook timeline was introduced. Initially, switching to the new timeline was voluntary, at that time users were notified for changing their profile to timeline and users has to click for the timeline activation. But, your time is up now! all those people who are still using the old facebook theme is going to be migrated to the timeline. After changing to timeline facebook will give you 7 days to remove any of the data from your profile which you don’t want to share with the public.
