I hope all this customization doesn’t end up making Facebook like MySpace. 🙁
And I hope it could be better than myspace. I think they already knew what happen to myspace and they have already learn their lesson, they just need to innovate more in parallel with the trends of the user.
@Dexter Panganiban, yeah and also on what happened to Friendster – I am sure they don’t want to end like that
well the sad part of Facebook Timeline is there are still users who doesn’t approve it and don’t want to activate it on their profile pages.
Not all are confident with the privacy issue of the timeline. My friends just update last weeks when they saw that I did it in my facebook.
