Facebook has announced a number of new features at F8 conference in San Francisco. The most important new feature it has introduced is the ‘Facebook Timeline‘ which is basically a scrapbook of a user. The Facebook Timeline allows the user to check out everything that has ever happened in his/her entire Facebook lifespan.

Remember that this new feature is not yet public and is only available to developers. The feature will go live on September 29, 2011, on its own.

If curiosity is killing you and you are an impatient person then here are the few necessary steps that will allow you to enable this awesome new feature right now:


Step 1:

Log into your Facebook account and click on this developer link.


Step 2:

Allow if a pop up appears then create a new app (don’t worry at all it will not be visible to anyone) and give it any name you like and enter any namespace. Tick the checkbox and click continue.
