So today I have been testing a new feature which Facebook had released in the last 24 hours called Facebook Time Lines it was announced at the Facebook F8 conference. Currently the product is available to people who are developers on Facebook.

At the Sydney F8 conference today they were really pushing this new product.

The thing which is mind blowing about the new product is that it puts together your whole profile from the past to the present.

1. You have a new home page view where it shows the time line of your account:

2. You then see a whole history of photos from your account per each year, also tagged photos come up.

3. Then by month you see the status updates you have made on your account.

Overall this just shows the amount of data that Facebook has and can use, it will be interesting too see how they can use this data for advertising.

Overall I feel that a lot of people will be angry about this and worried about the degree of data that the public can actually see, I mean would you want to show your whole like profile to just any random on the street?

Also finally a little goodie from the event which I may auction off soon for charity so stay tuned on that one:
