Facebook unveiled their new user profiles, Timeline which has the sole purpose of resurfacing all the content that you ever created on Facebook. 🙂

Timeline looks exciting, as per the demo that Mr. Zuckerberg gave at f8 dev conference today, which would add a cool new look to your Facebook user profile with some awesome features like “Way Back” which lets you add photos of your past at the start of your Story of Life 🙂

Facebook automatically adds photos, status updates and life events from your Facebook history to your timeline more like a virtual scrapbook.
