Facebook timeline is launching. I set mine up and published it early. I wanted a chance to edit it and get used to it. The main difference is old posts used to be hard to find, now you can look back at your Facebook exsistence easily. Thankfully, I was a sporodic user until recently so there wasn’t much to feel embarrassed or sad by.
If you want to see my timeline page visit me here. Feel free to friend me whilst you’re there :)
I have been posting more frequently on Facebook thanks to finding blog readers on there and my desire to connect with other writers but I still prefer WordPress by far as a social media tool.
However, it took a while to get used to the fact WordPress keeps my posts, that I can look back and see my thoughts and ramblings. For someone who never kept a journal, it was hard to put things on here that I knew would remain fixed until I desired to remove / delete them. We change so much through time – who we are and what we’re doing and who is part of it that capturing all the changes becomes a scary thought but I think it would be scarier not to see the changes.
If I looked back and couldn’t see growth in myself then I would be disappointed. So I’m going to embrace the new Facebook and treat it like this blog – something to watch myself and those I’m connected with grow through and by.
How do you feel about the new Facebook? Do you like to look back and see how you’ve grown?
