Timeline is a collection of stories (wall posts), photos and experiences that tell YOUR story. There are so many things you can do with Timeline and so far we had talked about how to add cover image, edit personal information and change your name. Now here comes the best part – you are going to handle all the sharing and hiding stories however you wish. It’s your call.
But first, you should know people can view your timeline by scrolling through the dates on the right-hand side of your timeline and jumping from one year to another (or month):
Nevertheless you get to decide which stories stay on your Timeline by adjusting its visibility and audience selector settings. Let’s see how to go about with this:
How Can You Share Stories on Your Timeline?
This box is no stranger to us, eh? Same as how you normally share your status in your profile, you can add photos, tag your friends and add a location to your story. Something new here are sharing ‘Life Event’ and adding date to your story. One thing you should aware is that ‘life events’ is set to ‘public’ by default so adjust your audience selector before hitting that ‘Post’ button. An example of how ‘Life events’ work is jotting down the date when you decided to become a vegetarian and adding other information like how, who you were with, where , when and upload photos too:
You can change the date of your stories anytime, even from the tagged photos and videos of you by friends. Same thing goes if you tagged your friends; they will be able to change the date of the tagged stories too.
What if you missed adding a story and now you are way ahead from it? You can go back by scrolling through the center of your timeline and squeeze it in: pick a spot and click ‘+’ to post a story:
Sometimes while you are adding more stories to your timeline, some of them will fade behind the grey dots down the center of the timeline. You can bring up the story you want from there by hover over the dots, click ‘Feature’ to move the story out. Or you can too, feature the story while in the ‘Activity Log’:
All your featured stories will expand to widescreen and will ALWAYS appear on your timeline while others will fade over time.
Next post we will be discussing on how you can hide your story on Timeline, don’t miss it.
