I've had a play with Facebook's Timeline. It's interesting from a personal perspective to look back at the past five years but there's so much that I wouldn't want someone else to be reading. It seems like too much information about me for people to be able to discover. While it's been possible for people to access my photographs from years ago, in a sense they were out of context. Now you can see context because of the posts I made myself and those made by my friends on my wall. Once the service goes public, I'll be limiting access.

- Yes, that's my worry too. I've enabled mine (and checked there's nothing in there I don't want my colleagues to see) but there's no way I can find to set the whole timeline to Close Friends only. You have to go through each and every entry and set the privacy option retrospectively.Sep 23, 2011
- , I'm certainly not going to do that!Sep 23, 2011
- I've had a 'close friends' group on Facebook for more than a year now and they would be the only people I would let see the timeline, if it is possible to have custom settings. At the moment my Facebook is pretty private with a few public updates, very few public photographs, and everything limited to fiends, not limited profile.Sep 23, 2011
- On FB I do make some 'public' posts but only of c4 news related stuff. Photos with probably a few exceptions that I haven't notices have been limited to friends.Sep 23, 2011
- Why not make your profile private and remove it from search and build yourself a page for public interaction as a professional?Sep 24, 2011
- I have put my timeline live. I removed most of the personal stuff from the public version so it's just work.the reason why I want one profile is that it's easier to manage (like G+) and prevents double posting. About 100 of my FB fans are also my friends so they don't want to see double doses of me!Sep 24, 2011
