Facebook has been unrolling it’s new Timeline feature for a few months now. I was recently given the option to try it out on my profile, which I did. I like it. I like it so much I immediately went off to search and see if I could switch my Fan Page over too.
No can do, says Facebook.
“We are currently focused on Timeline for individuals and will consider how to make consistent experiences for Pages, but we have nothing to announce at this time,” according to a Facebook spokesperson.
Additionally, if you’ve already made the switch on your profile and hate it, there’s no going back. This is the new look for Facebook.
“Timeline is the new Facebook profile, they will not be able to opt out or go back to the old profile (once users have made the switch).”
Personally, I love Timeline. It’s more like a website, with a variety of new visuals. The back end is lovely too. Finally, you can go back and easily search your old updates, which is something I’ve been highly anticipating since I heard of the new look.
So, switch or don’t switch. Either way, this is the new look. If you make the change now, you’ll have a week to tinker with it. Or you can wait and let Facebook spring it on you just like all previous changes.
