There is some buzz happening around the rollout of Facebook’s much bally-hooed Timeline feature. Of course, in fine Internet industry fashion it is being trumpeted in front of the whole world but is currently only available in the high population center of New Zealand.
Mashable’s editor-in-chief Lance Ulanoff has graced us with his take on the service that has been “leaked” ahead of this move:
Mashable showed us all how to build our Timelines early, ahead of Facebook’s broader rollout schedule. As a result, I, and millions of others, have had the opportunity to build and play with our Timelines. The fact that we could do so is, I believe, no accident on Facebook’s part. Last month, Facebook executives told me they wanted to seed savvier users with the feature to help guide newbies. Essentially, to prepare them for this day when average people would be confronted with this simple choice. Once they opt into Timeline, their profile page will never be the same, and they will look to those who have been using Timeline for more than two months for help.
Well, if you are one of the commoners like I suspect I would be considered, you should feel blessed that there are more important Facebook users out there who can show you the light, huh? Geesh.
