The feature hasn’t been available to the public yet, but there is a way you can get it right now. Here is what you have to do.
Step 1: Log into your Facebook account and follow this link.
Step 2: Next, you will be requested for permission, click “allow”.
Step 3: Click “Create New App” in the top right corner.
Step 5: Click “Open Graph” in the left sidebar.
Step 6: On the next page, fill in anything in fields under the heading and click “Get Started”.
Step 7: Scroll down and click “Save Changes and Next”. Do the same on the next screen.
Step 8: After you are done with step 7, you will be taken to this screen. Wait for a few minutes and then go back to your Facebook homepage.
Step 9: On your homepage, you will see a message to get your timeline feature. Click “Get it now” and you are done. 😉
A few things to note:
- The feature is still in development phase, so expect a few bugs.
- For the time being, only YOU can view your timeline, but it will go public after a few days. In my case, it will go public on Septmber 30th.
- If you login from different device, timeline is disabled, although you can get it back by following this: link: http://www.facebook.com/YOURUSERNAMEHERE?sk=timeline
- You will need to have a “verified” account for one of the steps, which means you need a credit card or phone number attached to the account.
