There’s been a lot of buzz about the new Facebook layout and timeline. I finally enabled the new timeline through the developer release. In doing so, it looks like the public release of the new Facebook timeline and profile is October 6.
Update: Obviously, the new template hasn’t been released yet to the public. At one point, there was some conflict with a lawsuit. I also believe Facebook is making sure they get it right with this rollout. The update rearranges users profile pages significantly.
This was the message displayed on my profile page as I was editing the new profile layout.
Of course I hit publish now. I’m not waiting a whole week! And of course Facebook let me know just developers could see my newly enabled Facebook profile and timeline.
If you’re interested in getting the new Facebook timeline and profile through the developer release, I followed these steps on Mashable. Now, if you’re interested in customizing the new Facebook timeline, here are the dimensions of the Facebook cover and a template to download.
