Enable Facebook Timeline Right Now

Timeline is a major Profile Redesign which shows your profile as your story of life, all in one single page. As you go back in time, it shows the major events/updates that have happened in your life: the farther you go back in time, only the key moments of life are shown until you reach a small baby icon which indicates your birth.
You can add things to your timeline to make it more realistic and add in events of your life which you never shared or back before you had a Facebook Account.

As always this feature is still in Beta and everyone would get it in few weeks but you can sign up for an invite on Facebook Timeline page.

But if you can’t wait for weeks, here’s a way to get it RIGHT NOW

  1. Login to Facebook and Enable Developer mode. Allow it to access your profile.
  2. Create a New App here, Give it a name and namespace, doesn’t matter what name you give you don’t actually have to publish it to public. For now name it For Timeline, namespace it as ‘getmetimeline’. Read through the terms and conditions and go ahead.
  3. Click on Open Graph on the left sidebar, and click ‘Get Started using Open Graph’
  4. Create a test action for your app, such as ‘give’ a ‘photo’
  5. Once done with that, you would see a page with app settings, rename the app if you want, change the default settings if you wish to, play around a bit with the settings and save settings of all the three pages.
  6. Go back to your Facebook homepage and refresh two- three times or just scroll around within few minutes you would have an invitation to try the new ‘Facebook Timeline’

This is how the new ‘Facebook Timeline’ profile page looks like.
