Facebook unveiled a major redesign Thursday that aims to turn the social network into the Internet’s central platform, allowing people to share music, news and movies with their friends online.
What is Facebook’s new feature Timeline?
The Timeline has three main components —a user’s stories, apps and a new way to express a person’s identity. Pictures and videos are featured prominently, making profiles more visually focused, and users can sort through information by date, type of media and location.
Some of the new apps were available immediately. The Timeline layout has started its beta test and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

How to Enable the New Facebook Timeline?
First log into Facebook and enable developer mode. The easiest way to do this is to just type “developer” into Facebook’s search box and click the first result. It should look like this.
After you’ve verified yourself as a human, you’ll reach this screen, where you’ll need to click “Open Graph” on the left side.
You’ll see the next screen, entitled “Get Started with Open Graph” — fill in anything you want (it doesn’t matter) in those fields under the heading “start by defining one action than one object for your app.” Click Get Started.
On this screen, do nothing except scroll to the bottom and click “Save Changes and Next.” Do the same thing on the next screen.
You’ll be taken to this screen. Wait a few minutes, and then go to your Facebook homepage. That’s where you’ll be invited to enable Timeline. Be patient at this point — sometimes it requires you to wait before the changes take effect.
Once you are presented with the screen above, you don’t actually have to do anything, just scroll to the bottom and select Save Changes. You may have to do this on a couple different screens; just remember to scroll to the bottom and select Save Changes.
Go back to your Facebook homescreen. An invite to try Timeline should be waiting at the top of the page.
You’ve Done It!
Here’s where you try to fix with your timeline, set it up the way you like it, and when you click Publish Now, your Timeline goes live. Or, you can wait until Thursday, September 29, 2011, and it’ll go live on its own.
