No one should be thrilled about Facebook Timeline being forced on them. It’s like telling everyone that in a week they have to wear a bikini 24-7 but only in front of people they feel comfortable with.
If you don’t change your settings, hide or delete posts, check-ins, comments, etc., every one of your Facebook Friends will be able to see everything you put on your page since the first day you started sharing on Facebook.
TMI comes to mind.
I got the new Facebook Timeline in early November. I had 10 days to try it, clean it up, test it, decide what to share with who on my Friends list. It was introduced as an early invitation for use from Facebook.
But you get six days from today, January 31, and then, your comments, photos, check-ins, likes are all out on your page for your friends to peruse freely.
You can change it easily by choosing to hide, or delete posts, or just let it all hang out.
It took hours to go through three years of information. I didn’t regret anything, I just wanted to protect my privacy. Kind of like choosing who gets to see me wearing a bikini out of the 358 Friends on my Facebook page.
What will Facebook force people to accept next?
