One of the more recent features to be implemented on Facebook is referred to as the Facebook Timeline.
The Facebook Timeline feature is graphical in nature and changes the way in which a persons Facebook page is laid out. It tells a story in chronological order by way of showing pictures, posts and comments that are organized in a visual way that allows the eye to read through a persons Facebook story and history.
Launched in December 2011, the Facebook Timeline feature went truly live for all users on December 22, 2011 and changed the way in which Facebook pages appear to others.
The use of Facebook Timeline is not optional, but those who use the feature prefer the way in which their Facebook page appears.

As you read down a page formatted in the Facebook Timeline manner, you can see what has been happening in a persons life, and even click on specific years to further catch up with someone you may have grown apart from and are trying to reconnect with.
