Facebook to Require New Timeline Profile


There are numerous pages and groups against the new profile, plus negative comments on the blog post announcing the switch. The most popular comment is from Facebook user Mohamed Isham, "Old One is Better!" with more than 2,000 "likes."

There are also those who embrace the change. As of today, more than 1.9 million people have "liked" the page introducing Timeline.

Mike Parlitsis, a college senior from Somers, N.Y., switched over to Timeline in October of last year by taking advantage of the developer access time period. He is a fan of the new layout.

"I love that Facebook deviated from the typical layout of every social media outlet," he said of Timeline. "They created a whole new interface while keeping everything user friendly and aesthetically appealing."

The one aspect he especially enjoys is the integration of apps.

"My favorite is the integration with Spotify," Parlitsis said. "It is an amazing way to share music with your friends and you can even collaborate on playlists and share them with your friends."

According to Facebook, there are currently more than 800 million active users and more than 50 percent of users log on in any given day.
