Facebook announced its new profile design called Timeline: “The story of your life” at its recent F8 Conference, a new design to log your digital autobiography completely on Facebook. Now you can point to one digital place and explain your entire life; where you grew up, where you went to school, who your best friends are, what your family is like, the most amazing place you ever been, etc.
Chris Cox, the VP of Product Management on Timeline took the stage at the event to tell the creation story of Timeline:
“What is the modern vehicle for the timeless process of scrap-booking? It started with a box. Now, it’s comprehensive and easy to use. You don’t have to spread it out on your living room floor…Timeline really is a blank canvas. We have no idea what’s going happen next. We’re a culture of builders, now let’s make something awesome,” said Cox.
Today, Facebook sent us an invite to meet the designers behind Timeline, what may be Facebook’s most defining feature yet. We’ll be there with inspiring questions in hand. But most importantly, what do you want to know?
