Facebook just recently introduced a new kind of profile! This article will help you get a better idea of what it is, and how to navigate with it.
On December 15th, at 7:30 am released announced that the Timeline was now available worldwide, then later at 1pm introduced timeline for mobile, which was available on the touch version of m.facebook.com and on Facebook for Android version 1.8.1.
Facebook said that Timeline gave an easy way to rediscover things that you’ve shared in the past, and collect your most important moments.
One thing that most people don’t like about Facebook is its constant change, and how it redesigns, then you have to get use to the new design. That is totally opposite for me, i love to see the new designs and see how they’ve changed and made better. For this profile layout and design, I really like it. I like how they made it where you can add a big header, or what they call a cover, at the top of your profile, I also like how right under that cover -if you choose to add a cover- they have the little bit of information about you like where you work, live, relationship, of course if you have all of that on your profile. Along with next to that, little square links to go to your friends, pictures likes, etc.
Now to the star of the show, for what makes it called a timeline. Just to the right of your profile, and to the left of your chat box, you will find little links, and once you first go on the page, you will see the ‘Now’ link bolded. This is what lets you “rediscover” you past shared. You will also find under the ‘Now’ link you will also find different months, and years. This is a timeline for you, and a stalker tool for others. And each month you click, it will load the posts for that month, and each year you click, it will load the highlights for that year.

I hope that gave you a better idea of Timeline. Here is a picture below of what it looks like on Paul McDonald, Facebook Engineer’s profile:
