The social giant announced that it has completed rolling out of one-column Timeline profiles. Facebook also shared that it now collectively adding about 200 million items daily, including the many developers which have been already integrated with sections making their apps a core part of people’s identities on timeline.

Back in March, the company started the process of introducing the new one-column Timeline to all, with redesigned section and emphasised on interests. The new timeline result in offering users a place for the things that they care about, that actually meant for them.


The company also suggested that it you are a developer yourself, then it would be recommended to have pace with all these best practices with you:

  • Give people a way to add your custom section to timeline: Consider including a URL in your app to give your users a preview of your section and help them decide whether to add it to timeline.
  • Choose the right template for your section: Apps with great visual content should use the gallery template to draw people’s attention, and there are also list and map templates.
  • Focus on quality and completeness before submitting your section for approval: To make the review process simple, submit your section only after making sure your object images and descriptions are complete and look great from the perspective of your users.
