Timeline, the final step for Facebook

8 Mar

Facebook is one of those things that will forever define our generation and it isn’t something that is going away anytime soon.  The first time I logged onto facebook my sophomore year of high school, the only thing I was expecting was to now have a way to see pictures of all the weird kids from back in grade school.  In the past four years that I have been an active facebook member, it seems that facebook goes through a half a dozen facelifts and makeovers a year but I think the next chapter that facebook will soon mandate is truly the culmination of everything facebook has ever worked toward, The Timeline. I am not typically the type of person that is at the forefront of these new facebook changes.  I am set in my ways and like things to stay the same but I am definitely behind the new features that the Timeline is putting into place.  Our generation is always on the go and new technology is constantly making that easier and easier.  We need things that are simple and efficient and don’t take any time or energy to get done.  I have always wanted to scrapbook or journal my life but I am always too busy being out there and actually living it.  The new timeline is like a scrapbook of all the silly pictures and comments a person has ever made.  One day my future kids will be able to log onto my facebook and see how much I have grown, from being that goofy little 8th grader with a horrible haircut to being a mom, and ever step along the way.  This is such an exciting time to be alive because instead of living our lives and just moving forward, we now have a way of looking back on all the good and not so good points in our life and we can share that with many a generation to come.
