  • Facebook has announced the introduction of a "timeline" last month, which puts your Facebook profile into a whole new exciting manner, as never previously imagined. Everything in your profile is going to be changed forever and everything will happen time-based.

    However, Facebook will start rolling out Timeline only after a few months or so, but here is a way to get the timeline, cheating Facebook into thinking you are an app developer.

    Here is what you should do:

    1) First of all, set your Facebook in developers mode temporarily , by going to http://developers.facebook.com (Dont worry. Your account wont be forced into developers mode from thereafter.) [If this is the first time you are accessing this site, then you should give this app some permissions]

    2) Click on the Apps tab on the top and click on the Create New App (Facebook's create a new app button) option.

    In the dialog box that comes up next, type any name - For example, your name, and for app namespace, type something else in shortcase. For example:

    Click on the I agree button and click on Continue. You should also type in the captcha thing that comes next.

    3) You will then proceed to the app page, which looks somewhat like this:
    You can also decorate your app with its own icon, etc, but its not required.
    4) Now comes the exciting part. On the left side, click on the "Open Graph" option :


    In the screen that comes next, type in anything. Even if its silly, type SOMETHING and then click on the "Get Started" option

    For the next couple of pages, just click the (Save Changes and continue button for Facebook) till the process finishes.

    Now all you need to do is to wait for a while.Seriously, you really should wait for a while.

    After about 3 to 4 minutes, then go to http://www.facebook.com and you will get an invite to join timeline waiting for you there:

    All you have to do is to click on "Get Timeline" and voila! Experience the timeline fun!

    Some things you should know:
    • Everyone will not be able to see TimeLine instead of your profile, only other people who have timeline with them can see your timeline
    • Facebook will automatically publish your timeline whenever it releases timeline in public
    • Once you select the "Take a Tour" option, read everything carefully, instead of hurriedly clicking on Next>
    • If you are, for some reasons, unable to access your TimeLine, just use the general URL:
    http://www.facebook.com/{username}?sk=timeline
     If you are using timeline and have some problem, do write in!
