Mobile Timeline 2 2 3

Facebook has released Timeline to the entire world, and now you can access some of its features from Facebook for Android 1.8.1 and the HTML5 mobile site m.facebook.com. You can scroll through Timeline posts, photos, and third-party app activity reports. Sometimes you can open the apps themselves. However you cannot change the privacy settings of your posts.

Photos

Photos are displayed at full screen width and look beautiful, and the Timeline interface is clean with better web controls. When viewing photo albums, 4 thumbnails are displayed at a time, but you can swipe to view additional thumbnails. You can similarly swipe through Timeline Views to select to see someone’s Friends, Likes, Photos, or Subscribers. Overlaid controls let you edit your cover.

Places

Places posts on mobile Timeline do not link to the Google Maps website or app, but instead launch a Bing Maps mobile site.

Privacy Settings

Timelines’s Activity Log privacy controls can’t be accessed via the app or mobile site. You can only delete or hide existing posts by holding down on a post, but can’t alter who can see them. This could be an issue as a large portion of the world uses Facebook primarily through mobile devices, who will want those controls to manage their accounts.

Facebook Mobile

If you are not using Android you can get to Timeline via m.facebook.com or, from your iPHone. Facebook released an iPhone version on December 18th.

 

Overall Mobile Timeline is a great way to view Facebook content, even if you can’t control exactly who sees yours.
