iPhone users can now access Facebook Timeline

A few days ago, Facebook finally flipped the switch on the Timeline feature that will eventually replace the current profile for all Facebook users. Timeline went live on the Facebook web site, the mobile site (m.facebook.com) and for users of the Android app. Now iPhone users can also join in the Timeline fun with a new update to the iOS Facebook app.

If a person has already established a timeline profile, you can now see it on the 4.1 version of the iPhone app. There's no Timeline support yet for iPad users but the iTunes download page indicates that iPad support will be released soon. The 4.1 version of the iPhone Facebook app also reportedly has improved performance and has access to friend lists, subscribers and subscriptions.

As we have reported before, the new Timeline feature takes the major achievements that you have posted in your Facebook profile and creates a kind of chronology, showing your life via Facebook in place of the normal profile page. Facebook users who wish to access the Timeline feature now have seven days to edit the profile before it automatically becomes public. Users can also choose to edit and then push the Timeline out for public view ahead of the seven day deadline.
