40 Creative Examples of Facebook Timeline Designs



Recently at the F8 conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced a massive redesign to our favorite* social media website. Honestly The new updates are understandable and from their point of view provide a better experience for the end user. From personal point of view, each time they implement a change I get more confused while being forced to learn the new layout. When will they leave it alone? I have no idea. Twitter had a major redesign a couple of months ago, and that was easy to learn. Enough ranting, let’s talk about the new Timeline feature.
Facebook Timeline is a unique idea that has been getting some heat lately. Basically speaking it’s a story of your life that is visible to you as well as your friends. With privacy being a widely discussed issue on Facebook, Timeline completely diminishes that case. Most of the geeks in the community frown upon this feature, because your life is given to advertisers. Now they can target you based on your history. Very creepy to think about and makes me want to think twice before activating the feature.
Now let’s look at it on the flip side. In the video on their Introduction Page, it shows a young boy growing up while everything he has done being archived. His life becomes a digital scrapbook. Most of the people that have joined Facebook already passed their childhood and were probably a young adult when they joined. So in reality for the older folks using Facebook Timeline, everything is recorded from when they joined Facebook. Keep in mind that’s no earlier than February 4, 2004.
Currently you have to be a developer to gain access to the new design because it’s still in the beta phase. Supposedly the feature should of started to roll out on October 6th. However a recent federal suit has been brought against Facebook by Timelines.com.  They argue that the new feature will threaten its’ business. At this point we don’t know the outcome might be, but keep in mind………..if a check is written for a desired amount all issues disappear!

Wanna Create your own?

With the new update we think it give us, the users, a great opportunity to be creative! If you are indeed one of the few who have access to this beta feature, we have listed some useful dimensions. Now you can create your very own awesome Timeline design, and get a head start on your friends!

Prototype Timeline Facebook Fan Page Designs

The following designs are from a New York agency called Skinny. They have created some gorgeous examples of what the newly revamped Facebook Fan Page designs might look like if having the Timeline feature enabled. From the looks of it I think the implementation will allow companies to express their own creativity. Also for small businesses, Facebook could serve as a dedicated online location for their operations.
Setting up a website might be overseen, and companies might focus their efforts on Facebook only. This statement is solely based on my opinion, and makes complete sense if you think about it. Currently on a fan-page you can view images/videos, purchase items, read the latest happenings on their wall, contact them, and much more. If you are a small local business, there is no need for a website. Monetizing Facebook fully, can save you time and help you reach your local fanbase.
