So Facebook have just launched a brand new timeline as an entirely new way of using your Facebook profile but users won't be able to get their hands on it for another 2 to 3 weeks. Luckily we have a preview here of what it is going to look like for you all and how it will work. Although this has just been rolled out for personal profiles at first Mark Zuckerberg refused to rule out that it would be used for brands and businesses in the future which would open up a huge amount of possibilities beyond regular Facebook pages. We've recorded a little screen cast of it in action here as well as a step by step overview of how to set up your time line down below.
