Brian Solis: “Timeline is a new kind of profile, one that lets people tell their story in a visually-rich and artistic fashion. In addition to aesthetics, Timeline is essentially a social home page for all that moves you, from media to experiences to people. The biggest difference youâ€™ll notice is presentation. Starting with the substantial image that you choose to depict your persona, the new format essentially turns your profile into a Flipboard-esque (magazine) pictorial rich with updates, content, and connectionsâ€¦all designed to tell your story, your way. Donâ€™t be confused by the name however, Timeline is much more than that, itâ€™s essentially a storyboard for your digital and real life as told by what you share and what others share with you.”
â€œTimeline is the story of your life,â€ said Mark Zuckerberg â€œAll your stories, all your apps, express who you are.â€
It sounds just like a weblog, imagine that? I don’t need a siloed service to provide that. I already have it, I have a weblog.
If you care about your content, you should publish it yourself, you don’t need Facebook as much as they’d like you to think that. Use Facebook as a connector, drive traffic back to your weblog and your content. It is your content, right?
