Facebook Timeline releases today

No more posing as a developer to get access to what's been two months in holding.  The Facebook Timeline is beginning it's rollout today.

This new visual upgrade seems remeniscent of infographical design, as all your interactions with the service from wall posts to music listens, likes and everything else are combined into one page stream, making older content easier to get to (beyond the 'see more stories' grey bar).  

The feedback we've received so far has been invaluable. Starting today, we are making Timeline more widely available as we measure speed and other types of performance. We'll begin by making it available to people in New Zealand and then roll it out more broadly in the near future.

Regardless of this NZ initial rollout, we're getting a whole load of tip-offs saying invites to the lucrative upgrade have been going out in many more places than there...namely Nottingham and Lincoln, so expect one when you log on or soon!

See what we thought of Timeline...quick hint: we didn't really like it; but we liked it eventually.  See why you will too in our editorial.
