Facebook’s Timeline is now on Android and mobile, but not iOS

Facebook’s Timeline, which was finally rolled out worldwide today, has now arrived on mobile phones via Android and Now when you share a post with your phone, expect bigger photos, maps for the places you go and more details about the people you’re with. So far, there are no details regarding an iOS release.

Facebook explains:

Mobile Timeline starts with your unique cover photo. As you scroll down, you’ll see your posts, photos and life events as they happened, back to the day you were born. Photo albums and other posts are horizontally swipeable, so you can quickly view multiple photos or posts inline without leaving Timeline. You can also swipe through the views at the top of your Timeline to navigate to your map, photos, subscribers and more.

The goal here seems to lean towards creating a highly visual experience. The distinct Timeline dates are now located below your recent posts, instead of on the right side as with the traditional desktop version.
