Ever since Facebook was started, the profile and the wall are its part and parcel. They formed the integral part of facebook, but now facebook has made a bold decision in reinventing profiles and naming it as timeline.

The timeline features all that you have done since you joined facebook. It is like a magazine with a cover photo and all that. Yeah ! It is a magazine that features your life events. Let us take a deeper look at the timeline.

Cover

The cover is like a huge profile picture. It is the first that anyone would see when they enter your profile. It is a big picture of your life.

Stories

Once you scroll down, your actual profile picture can be seen along with some information about you, your number of friends, likes, notes etc which can be edited. Then there is the option to post your status updates. The status update box is revamped totally. Now there are more options The major one is that, now you can mark your life events in facebook. From an injury to buying a home to a relationship, there are inbuilt options as well as custom ones available which will let your mark the events of your life in your facebook timeline.

The things you share, comment, your recent tags and other similar stuff will be shown here.

Apps

Apps now become an integral part of the timeline. Apps are now closely integrated with facebook. So the stuff you do using your apps will be added to your timeline. For example, if you watch a movie through the netflix app, or hear a song through the spotify app, everything will be listed in your timeline.
