So you saw the new Facebook Timeline feature that the company will be rolling out in the next few weeks, and don't feel like waiting? Well, you can make it happen right now just by following a few simple steps. Here's how to grab hold of that new hotness:

  1. First, head up to the search field of your Facebook page and search for "developer." Click on the first result, and allow the app to access your account. This is an official Facebook app.
  2. Go into the Developer app and create a new app. Call it anything you want, and agree to all the privacy agreements.
  3. Go into your app settings area, find the Open Graph area and click on "Get Started using open graph"
  4. Create any action for your app, again it can be anything you'd like. "Watch" a "movie" is nice and general.
  5. Submit and click through the confirmation pages at the bottom.
  6. After a minute, go back to the main Facebook.com page, and at the top you'll see an invite to try out Timeline
  7. Accept!

That's it - you'll now have access to the new profile page - make it pretty! You can also see the Timeline profiles of other users (here's mine - feel free to subscribe!)

Nice, I tried it out and got it set up. Coolest part is going back and looking at the first posts that were sent to my wall from old girlfriends etc. I really like this update, however the Facebook masses will hate it at first smile

Is the new timeline going to disrupt the current facebook pages that many small companies have been rushing to put up and will it impact the current trend for putting main websites into an iframe page on their page.  this is especially popular with many firms who have gone for a wordpress/ FB Page combination to save cash.
