Facebook to launch Timeline for all users in next few weeks

If you are a Facebook user, and chances are -you are one, and you have yet to see the new Timeline profile replace the old profile on your page, it shouldn't be long before you will have to deal with it, like it or not.

The company announced on its official blog page today that Timeline will soon become the mandatory profile page for all Facebook users worldwide "over the next few weeks."

Timeline was first announced in September and went live in December, but the new profile didn't go live everywhere at once at that time. That will be changing very soon, apparently. As we have reported before, Facebook will allow its users to preview their Timeline page privately for seven days before it becomes the permanent profile page for your account.

The main page of your Timeline profile makes your messages look more like a chronological tree of events and messages, with special emphasis given to major events in a person's life such as a wedding, a new job and more. Some users of Facebook, as one might expect, have expressed their preferrence for the old profile page design. However, it looks like this Facebook change is sticking around.
