As anticipated weeks ago, Facebook has debuted Timeline for brand pages, granting businesses and organisations the opportunity to better brand their presence on Facebook and highlight important information by pinning posts to a prominent location.
Facebook may unveil Timeline for brand pages later this month according to a report from Ad Age. Facebook first introduced Timeline at its f8 developer conference in September of last year, which became available but optional to all personal profile pages that December.
One year after Facebook officially renounced support for Internet Explorer 6, it seems that Internet Explorer 7 is destined to experience a similar fate as support for the ailing browser is lacking in Facebook's most important recent innovation - Timeline.
Speaking to The Next Web's European Editor Martin Bryant at the Dublin Web Summit today, Ethan Beard, Director of Developer Marketing at Facebook, has confirmed that the roll-out of the new Timeline profile is now only "a matter of weeks" away.
Facebook has chosen Microsoft's Bing Maps over Google Maps to power new mapping features on its visually improved Timeline profile page. The new Timeline profile places greater emphasis on location-aware postings, with Facebook once again partnering with Microsoft rather than Google - arguably a greater competitor.
Among a slew of exciting announcements made by Facebook yesterday at their f8 developers conference, Facebook introduced Timeline - arguably the biggest shake-up in profile design ever! While it won't be made available to the public just yet, here's how to start using it right now!
