Facebook Timeline Tells 'Story Of Your Life'

MSNBC.COM - Today at the Facebook F8 developer summit, Mark Zuckerberg introduced a new kind of profile view called "Timeline." Instead of a profile and wall, it's a more controlled view of your world. As the name suggests, it gives you an easier way to view past events, older photos, trips around the world, using chronological, and in some cases geographical, navigation.

Instead of anchoring your page with a profile pic, you keep your profile pic but add a cover photo, something more panoramic, that doesn't have to represent you so much as look cool. You can jump around in time, all the way back to your first posts, and you can enter a Places map and browse different places you've been. You "star" the most momentous experiences of your life, making them widescreen, and you can remove stuff you'd rather not remember.

There's a private activity log now, too, so that you can go through everything you've ever posted, and select the stuff that you want your friends to see.

And it's not just about photos and posts. You can put the apps you want where you want, for easier access to the stuff you'd like to do. Facebook is clearly no longer just about creating a profile for others to see; it's more about creating a home that you use for communicating but also for consuming media. Timeline, with the anticipated apps coming for music, movies and media — along with the already insanely popular games — makes it possible.

Facebook CTO Bret Taylor says that they will roll out Timeline progressively "over the next couple of months."

When it goes live, you can publish it right away, or you can look it over and play with it, then make it live, explains product manager Samuel Lessin, in a helpful blog post.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Nothing beats being outside in this great weather right now, but this wet spring has brought a lot of pests.

Her 2-year-old son Liam was bitten.  “Actually, when he got bit he thought it was a bumblebee and then he was afraid of them,” she says. The bites
