The new Facebook Timeline

Drew explains how to customise your new Timeline

The new Facebook Timeline

It has been more than a year since the last major facelift, but Facebook is at it again. Drew explains how to customise your new Timeline.

The latest redesign of the Facebook user Timeline is focused on giving you the user more control over the information you display on your profile. The new Timeline allows you to add and remove different informational sections from your Timeline such as which pages you like, your favourite films, places you have checked into recently, notes and much more. Your brief ‘About’ section, list of friends and collage of photos are the only items that cannot be removed.

How to change your Timeline

Changing your Timeline is simple. Start by logging into your Facebook account on your computer. Now, in the top left-hand side of the screen, click on your name. 

You are now on your Timeline. There are two different areas on this page with the word ‘About’ displayed. The ‘About’ in question is the box below your profile photo. Scroll your mouse over the word ‘About’ and then in the same box, move the mouse over to the pencil symbol that has appeared on the right-hand side and click on it. From the box that has now appeared, click on ‘Edit Sections’. Now select and deselect sections that you wish to display or hide and then click ‘Save’ at the bottom of this box when you are done.

Do you like the new Timeline or should Facebook stop messing with the layout?

    I am seriously contemplating leaving Facebook. Too many changes all the time. I just want to use it to chat with my close friends..

    Why would I want to put out what I have done, am doing or going to do, and what I like and don't like. Who cares. I don't give stuff about what anyone else is doing or likes, so why should anyone be interested in my business. I don't use Facebook and never will.
