Bret Taylor, CTO von Facebook, über das in den nächsten Wochen kommende Timeline-Feature für Profile:
As part of f8, today we announced Timeline. Timeline is a page on which you can put the events and activity that matter most to you. We provide some of the most important stuff that you’d want to put there, like photos and major life events — but those types of content are really just the start. With the Open Graph, you, as Facebook developers, can enable people to truly make their Timelines their own.
Etwas ähnliches gab es früher schon einmal:
If you’ve been on Facebook for more than a year or two, you probably remember a time when it was possible to embed third-party applications in your profile. Initially it was possible to actually embed application widgets on your profile (remember when everyone had a Graffiti drawing?), but they were later relegated to separate tabs because they led to MySpace-like clutter.
