Facebook launches new Timeline and media sharing

Tech Industry
-Hi Rafe Needleman from CNET here at the Facebook F8 Developers Conference where very polished Mark Zuckerberg just announced some important new changes in the way people share information and connect with friends. -We've been working on it all year and we're calling it time line. -This is very, very exciting for entrepreneur who's trying to build an audience and build up personalized web experience for their audience using the Facebook products. -First, there's a new view of what you're doing and what you've done on Facebook called the timeline. Now with this, everything you do from taking photos to cooking shows up in place in chronological order. Information will summarize automatically as you go further back in time and users can customize most aspects of the timeline to friends how they want to appear. -whether if you're endorsing a friend, posting a job, maybe you just changed jobs, or maybe you just got a promotion, things are important to you professionally that should go into this new Timeline in Facebook. Now, this is a Developers Conference and this new is big for Facebook developers. Now, they will able to get data into timeline automatically and without spamming user's profile page as every time someone say goes for a run listens to attractive music. -He has this nice running app that he's using to keep track of his runs and I think that's pretty cool. So, I'm just gonna hover over it and click, add the timeline and I'm gonna get this nice pop up and I can just click on it, add to my timeline. It's right on my timeline. -Most of these activities will appear in the new Facebook ticker, the live view of what people are doing in real time on Facebook. -6 of my friends are watching an episode of Glee on Hulu and I can just hover over that and click and watch it in a new social canvass app that Hulu has built and that another key point for users and especially for media services like Spotify and iHeartRadio and video sites like Netflix. -We think that the radio listening experience is inherently social that people love to talk to their friends about stuff. They like to go places. In the old days, it was the request line, it was the song dedications. Now, they are able to do that virtually by using Facebook. -You friends can see what you're doing immediately and pop up their windows to show the same show and watch it with you. -You have complete control over your timeline. What you show there, how you display it, and who can see it. -To share the media that you're viewing on Facebook with your friends in real time is rolling out the day. The timeline view is rolling out in beta today and to the general population in a few months. -It's the story of your life. You have all your stories, all your apps, and a new way to express who you are. -For CNET, I'm Rafe Needleman.
