Tech Minute: Facebook's Timeline feature Video Transcript
The first major difference with Timeline Profile is the large cover photo of the top of the page by hovering your mouse cursor over the space, you can easily change the picture. Choose from photos in existing Facebook (options?) or upload a new one. Next, you wanna organize your page. Below the cover photo, you'll find all of your profile's information, that was in the left hand column, now clustered into different categories or apps. Friends, education, relationship status, photos, etc. By clicking each app, you can adjust the privacy setting for who sees what, and for how you want those apps ordered or even shown at all. Now, that the top of your page has arranged, it's time to dig into the actual Timeline. The idea is that all of your status updates and post will not be arranged chronologically, and since your Timeline goes back to your birth, you can fill in any blanks by posting all photos or adding events. Again, each item on the Timeline is customizable for privacy and for which of your friends can view it. Hopefully, using Timeline as your actual profile, will soon become second nature and perhaps even useful for recording your life. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, Cnet.com for CBS News.
