Facebook's new contour layout, Timeline, is here. The Timeline layout was officially rolled out on December 29th, after it's much awaited release. For hardcore Facebook users the new layout is just another way to showcase their life and also add a little bit of personalization.Timeline is a new format for your Facebook profile that sorts all your Facebook activity chronologically, from your most recent status update all the way back to your birth. Timeline is also a great opportunity to tell people about yourself and your work history. It will also highlight the biggest moments in your life by displaying your photos, videos, and statuses.The new Timeline, shows every status update, wall post and photo ever posted since the day you joined Facebook. It also becomes easily searchable to you and your friends by following the date map available. For many - early adopters especially - dredging up the past for all to see could be a privacy nightmare.You do have the ability to change what appears on your Timeline, by going into your settings. However, Facebook does automatically fill in events for you. If you want to make sure your boss, business partners, or potential customers see what you want them to see on your Timeline, try the View As feature. This allows you to look at your timeline from the point of view of any of your Facebook friends so you can see exactly what is and isn't visible to them."It's fun and easy to fill out your timeline," Zuckerberg said.Using Facebook Covers to Personalize Your New TimelineThe coolest thing about Timeline, is that you can also easily personalize it with Facebook Covers.At the top of your Timeline profile you will see a full photo that covers most of the profile real estate-it also includes an inset of your contour photo.There are several sites that will allow you to personalize your Facebook profile with a simple click. The experience for users is seamless and fun and requires little effort for them to personalize their identity. You can use your favorite sports teams, pop stars or favorite personal photos as Facebook covers.Timeline lets users create customized covers on Facebook. This can become an important part of how people express themselves on Facebook. The status bar has also had a change of direction too, it now allows you to update your status, add a photo and location but also a 'life event'; these events can be anything from documenting a broken nose, to having a baby and even getting a divorce.However, the most fun part is making it all your own. Much like decorating your own room, the new Timeline, can easily be changed to adapt to any mood or phase in your life.Facebook Covers that reflect your unique personality can easily be created on various sites for no cost and within minutes. There are thousands of pre-fab covers as well, if you are feeling too lazy to create your own.
