Facebook unveiled their new Timeline profile today.
For some, it's not that exciting but I think it's a great move on their part and this totally raises the bar, in my mind, for the whole social network user experience. I have long been asking for a way to view my post history on Facebook and for Facebook to heed that call, which they have now done pretty successfully (it's done in timeline format, an intuitive and user-centric method of searching archived posts…). For first semi-public release, it's awesome.
I also think that Google still has far to go to come close to offering the kind of community that is found here and now have an even fiercer competitor and quite possibly, don't see them catching up unless they're holding a few great aces left up their sleeves.
I'm looking forward to playing around with it further over the next few days. Take a look below for a little preview if you've not yet seen it.
