Rumors of Facebook Timeline Troubles

19

Facebook has started rolling out its new Timeline profile and over the weekend, here in Finland, there were some reports that private messages are being posted to users’ profiles.

We have seen no solid evidence of this. And given that Facebook’s Finnish translation is far from perfect, the whole thing could just be a misunderstanding. Here’s an example of one translation we read today… Timeline profiles now include a new type of story called “Life Events”. In the “Health & Wellness” category, there’s an option for “Got Contacts”. In Finnish, the word used is for contact info, rather than contact lenses.

So we’re still waiting to see just what type of “messages” are being posted.

Mikko Hypponen’s Twitter feed is published to his Facebook Timeline, and you can subscribe there to his updates for breaking news.

If you have a Facebook account, you can activate your Timeline from facebook.com/timeline. You’ll have seven days to preview (and clean up…) your timeline before it becomes public.
