    Many users are now using facebook timeline... But I think it just takes away the simplicity and fluidity the facebook user interface had... What do u think...?

    Agreed, Timeline takes some getting used to and I still don't get the layout of staggered posts but it's easier to go back in time to see what you posted from the beginning of opening your account.

    Our opinions do not matter.

    Zuckerberg wanted to organize our personal data in a more systematic way, what better than in a chronological order. Now corporates can easily find the relevant information with just a click of a mouse and tapping two keys. :)

    More organized, but a bit confusing. Well it will always be confusing for everyone. Is like changing from skiing to snowboarding.

    I don't see what's so confusing about it tbh, there's nothing much to 'learn' about it. It's pretty straight forward even for a non-facebook user like me.

    I think it sucks, I definitely wouldn't use it until they shove it down my throat.

    Oh and join the gbatemp facebook group if you haven't already.

    I think it was a Zelda's timeline reference.
    I could be wrong.

    I like the timeline; it's simple, systematic and easy to organize. Plus, I like the cover thing.

    When u view sumones profile it seems as if all the pics and posts are scattered all over the page... The only thing I like was the the banner option... But then too its not good enough to make me fall for it...

    You can't. And never will be able to either. It has changed, deal with it. Everyone will be forced to use it from some date in the near future.

    Personally I like it.

    Me likes it :D Best thing facebook have done in a long time. Much better use of screen space and easier to get through posts.

    I don't get the fuss about everyones data being available everywhere. It's just as visible as it was on the old wall and has the same security settings. If you didn't lock it up on the old wall then it won't be locked on the current one.

    I find it annoying. Of course, I'm not sure how much of that comes from the actual layout and how much just comes from the fact that it's a change.

    The worst thing is that you have to scroll down to view the pics and posts... Earlier it was so simple to just go into photos section and view the photos in thumbnail format and then just chose to open any photo...

    I don't think I've ever felt more indifferent.
