    The iOS Facebook app has been just updated to display the new timeline feature.

    I dunno if I even wanna switch to timeline, it's weird. But I'm guessing eventually Facebook as a whole is going to switch and you'll have to have timeline?

    Anyways, the mobile Facebook app blows, it barely ever loads pictures/comments, doesn't actually "refresh", force closes, and a lot of times people have ended up commenting on a picture and the comment will show up on another picture.

    I feel like it just get's worse and worse.

    Everyone gets it on the 22nd of Dec whether you like it or not. You're better getting it now and using the 7-day period where no one can see it but you. Took me a while to delete all my old stuff.

    I dislike the whole concept of it - I'm not the same person I was in 2007, so why does Facebook want to dig up all my old stuff for people to snoop on?

    I KNEW IT. Seriously I'm just gonna close my Facebook.

    And I agree with you, I think Facebook is creepy. I don't want people being able to flash back into my past and read everything I did, see every picture, cuz like you said... when you opened your Facebook years ago, you were a different person.

    I only have mine to keep in touch with family and close friends. People seem to use it for obsessively socially interacting, or posting 10 status' a day, it's odd to me. I mean I cant even tell you how many friends I have that I knew from High School, that I never interact with. Whats the point.

    they can go back now, what's the difference?
    I went on my wife's Facebook and I went back 2 years without the time line. I just don't like it because it looks like Myspace in way, the lay out.

    I like it. It actually seems WAY more organized than the regular Facebook layout. I was mad too, until I actually tried it.

    You have to make sure you press the publish button, or else it won't show.

    It always looks messy on the desktop. That's why I sometimes just view sites my iPad or iPhone since the app is much "cleaner" - but by no means that it is great.
