I don't consider myself tech savvy At All. Until just a few years ago, we had a 15 year old Big TV, No Caller ID and my cell phone pretty much only makes calls (no text or pictures).
But that's not to say that I don't LIKE technology. I simply choose to spend my money on other Gadgets. We all have our vices.
I only joined Facebook 3 years ago - AGES after most of my friends were active.
I've been hearing and seeing a lot of conversation lately about the new Facebook Timeline. And how everyone is concerned with the changes, how they don't like the new format, and how there is resentment about being forced to change.
I've even read that Today is the Day that everyone automatically Rolls to the new Timeline format (I wouldn't know, as I voluntarily switched some time ago....because I had to find out what all the talk was).
I am LOVING the new Timeline.
I think the big giant Cover Photo is so much fun. It just screams to me to be creative and play around with the photos.
I wanted to share some of the Cover Pages I created.
I don't have any special graphics or editing software. This was created using Picasa (which is free).
I made this one for my Mom....who was not interested in the new timeline at first, but now she has a beautiful cover photo from one of her trips.
This was an idea I had for my Bunches and Bits Facebook page....I need to incorporate a caption saying something like "what should I create today".
There are some people doing some really creative things with their covers. Just search "funny facebook cover photos" and you will see.
There are lots of online sites that now have templates to create great cover photos.
I also love the whole idea of Facebook being a Timeline. A single place to record your personal details.
I'm not one of those people who remember dates, so this is perfect for me.
I have started recording details (and photos) of major life events. Like each time we have moved, along with a photo of our home.
It's amazing how quickly you forget the details.
I love this photo of my Dad and I. I couldn't tell you where the original digital file is, but I was able to download it (from a previous blog post) and it now sits safely on my Facebook Timeline - along with the date that he passed away.
Wow, it's been 4 years already. I would never have guessed that (see I'm not good at remembering dates).
It will take a while to get things in order on my new Facebook Timeline, but I like that it may help me get more organized.
So go ahead - I encourage you to embrace the new look of Facebook...and all it has to offer.
Change is Good
