So... Arwen and I were chatting on FB about her getting "timelined" and I found some cover photos that conveyed the sentiment well. I went to post them on the thread on FB and received a warning that my content was inappropriate and if I persisted in posting this link that FB would prevent me from posting messages going forward.
The mayor of Boston should totally block Facebook there over this timeline business.
I don't really care about timeline on my own profile. Its not like I'm looking at myself all that much, but it does make the content of other people's stuff a big confusing out-of-order mess. But then, I don't look at other people's profiles that often either - mainly just the feed.
So, I'm really meh about the whole timeline thing - and actually, I sorta like the banner stuff. People take their banners very seriously.
It seemed to be somewhat optional for people at first but now it is being imposed. There were a few of us that were holding out for as long as possible, ignoring the different enticements - "you can only use this feature if you switch to the new Timeline blah blah blah."
Last night they switched me while I slept! Bastards!
I wanted to post something in the new format that voiced my displeasure and so Anny started this thread to post images for me.
ETA "it does make the content of other people's stuff a big confusing out-of-order mess" EXACTLY!!!!!

Hey, Arwen? Your page is still in the old format for me.
You must be in the window where it warns you it is going to switch you. In that window you have like 7 days (I think) to get right with god before it is published automatically or you can publish yourself (sort of like committing Hari-Kari, but it does have its own sense of elegance).
I think the FarceBookers just got pissed that you could clean up your page
by deleting stuff you didn't want building up (i.e. game app updates).
So they made them tough to see. Out of sight, permanently embedded in face-lore.
It's now apocalyptic in zombie-like fashion to be 'TIMELINED' by FailBook.
Welcome to the next decade of the new millennium.
Always gotta be 'improving' stuff to fit someone else's needs/wants.
