For everyone who hasn’t been looking forward to the new Facebook Timeline, it seems your prayers have been temporarily answered: It’s not ready for primetime yet.
As Facebook Timeline: Negative Feedback May Have Caused Rollout Delay conjectures, it’s the feedback from the early adopters that have ground this happy hamster wheel to a halt, and I think I agree: While the littlest change can have users burning up their online hours with complaints, legitimate or otherwise, the Timeline is no little change. It’s a complete new look and experience. Rolling it out to the masses before evaluating developer feedback would be a huge mistake even for this social media giant.
Me, I got used to the Timeline after having used it for awhile. I find that I generally only use the top half of my screen, with previous posts residing in the nether regions beyond the fold. I’ve gotten good at not-seeing what I’m not using, too.
Are you on the new Timeline? Can’t wait to try it? Wish it would exit quietly, stage left, no fanfare?
