Facebook have announced that their new 'Timeline' will be forced upon all users in the next 7 days. What this means is unless you take care of it now, Facebook will and this means EVERY post, update and photo from the day you started will be made public. No need to ultra panic yet - Facebook will hide your history for 7 days, giving you time to edit. But if you don't, or if you oversee posts, they will become public. As analysts have said, maybe you were writing loving posts to an ex but were comfortable in knowing they were delteted way before your met your new partner......they will be there for him/her to read. Worse, you may know there are inappropriate photos from years back but again, they were hidden for years before you got your job.....they will be dug up again. It will also be an absolute nightmare for frequent or 'old' FB users, as you will need to edit years of posts. I think one journalist put it well when he said the founder of FB was a social *** - such a move by FB (the way the do it) is complete evidence of that.
