This timeline feature isn’t the first timeline that Facebook will have attempted to use. Once upon a time, at least 4 years ago, when you joined Facebook and added friends it always asked “How do you know this person?” and “When did you meet?”
Those questions as well as many other little things within Facebook lead to a social timeline that was tucked away in it’s depths. It filled gaps in time in with witty things like “Darryl was underground this year.” and “Darryl wasn’t very active.”
Now they’ve just got more data to make the timeline more interesting. I suspect that this old data will resurface in some way. I’ll be interested in seeing how else they fill in holes this time. It will be interesting to see the mass reaction to it. It will be interesting to see how much I can control.
It will also be interesting to see how many times my statuses show up as “looking for a hottie.”
