A Timeline is the virtual space in which all the content of every Facebook user is organized and shown.
Replacing the old Facebook Profile, in a Timeline the photos, videos, and posts of any given user are ordered according to the period of time in which they were uploaded or created, in this way providing a more intuitive and comprehensible way to navigate through them.
As indicated by its name, the main navigation tool of a Facebook Timeline is a timeline that starts in the birth date of its owner and ends in the present time. Users are able to assign and modify the period of time associated with any of their content, as well as the audience allowed to see each piece of information.
Some other remarkable elements of a Timeline are the Cover, which is a very big picture designed to be the first thing people see when they visit it, and the social apps, that allow users to tell the things they do, such as for example that they’ve listened to a song or watched certain movie.
