How To Enable / Get / Activate Facebook Timeline Right Now

Facebook has just launched a new feature called Timeline, however, it’s not available to all users as it finds itself in the beta phase. The good thing is that you can enable it although it might take a full 5 minutes before you finish the job. We can provide a way to activate the Facebook Timeline, but you should make sure that you do everything we tell you to do and follow the steps accurately.

If you don’t know what the Facebook Timeline is, then you should hear that it’s resembles your real-life resume. We don’t know whether Facebook is trying to kill LinkedIn with the Timeline feature or if it really wants to help users organize their profile in a better way.

Until now, Facebook was all about catching the latest news, updates, photos, but many important stuff was lost in time because the feed was too “busy.” After introducing the subscribe button, the next logical step is the Timeline which allows users to create a special page that displays the most important activities that you’ve done over time.

The Facebook Timeline displays your achievements by month and by year. You can show your Facebook friends when you finished high-school, when you joined college, when you graduated, where you got your degree, when you married, when your first child was born, where you were in vacation, albums of your family, coworkers or friends, apps you like and play, and everything else. You can read more about Timeline right here.
