MILWAUKEE — Facebook users take note. If you have not already changed over to the Timeline, Facebook will automatically do it for you on Saturday, March 31st. But you won’t be alone — more than 800 million users are affected by the switch.

What makes Timeline different? Quite simply, it makes your photos more prominent; easier to find. It also organizes your posts chronologically.

Timeline is dominated by what is known as a cover picture. It’s a massive picture featured at the top of your page — it’s the first thing people see when they visit your timeline.

Timeline also allows your friends and fans to easier find your Facebook posts from a long time ago. Once you make the switch, you’ll notice there’s a “spine” down the middle of the page which is the timeline. In the upper right-hand part of the site, there’s also a more broad timeline which allows you to jump to other years.

Just below, we have provided a YouTube video from the official Facebook to explain exactly how Timeline works.

We invite you to “LIKE” FOX6 News on Facebook and check out what we’ve done with our Timeline. Or take a look at what we’ve done with the FOX6 Weather Team Facebook fan page. Need more ideas? Check out what the individual FOX6ers have done with their Timeline by CLICKING HERE.
