As a surprise, I’m very pleased and excited about the new Timeline feature that Facebook has introduced. It looks very neat and sleek indeed. To be honest, the one feature that I’ve really laid my eyes on is the possibility of looking back at all my old posts with ease, and Facebook Timeline promises to do just that and more!

Unfortunately, not everyone is on Facebook timeline as of now. It’s currently open to Developers and will soon roll out to the general population on Facebook. If you’re so excited like yours truly was when I first heard about Facebook timeline, then these easy steps might help you out get started with timeline before everyone else does!
