Timeline is far from popular

Facebook is certainly not hurting for money, the company sitting on a massive stockpile of cash. That doesn't mean it doesn't want to make more cash. Facebook is always looking for ways to squeeze more revenue out of the millions and millions of users it has on the social network. The latest way that Facebook is trying to get people to make more content available to more people is timeline.

The problem with timeline as the vast majority of people just don't want to use it. As it stands right now The Telegraph reports that only one in 10 Facebook users actually supports the timeline feature. The bad part for these people don't want to use timeline is that the future is becoming mandatory so everyone will be forced use it.

The idea behind timeline is that you can put all the important posts and important things that happened in your life up front and the posts will stay there. The downside is the timeline profiles can be difficult to navigate. Security firm Sophos surveyed 4000 Facebook users and only 8% of the users in the survey like the change. We can only hope that all the user complaints will force Facebook to rethink mandatory timeline. Do you like timeline?
