No Facebook, I Don’t Want Your Stupid Timeline

Posted on: February 24, 2012

Facebook has been the most popular social networking website of all time. It was once a simple social networking site where we could post our statuses, stalk check up on our friends and family, whether distant, or current, even reconnecting with them overtime. It was so popular, even our parents have joined, leaving them feel secure their children wouldn’t be lured in by some online creep. With all the fun games and large networks, everyone including myself, completely abandoned MySpace.


Over the years, Facebook has added new features, changing the layout, and eventually, getting rid of some of its privacy settings. The billions of users have complained, and have eventually adjusted. Now Facebook has gone officially too far.


The timeline is going to show posts all the way back telling everyone the date you first signed up. I looked at my cousin’s timeline, and even though she’s had a happy healthy relationship with her boyfriend, for almost seven years, it acts as if they started dating, and broke up. All because her boyfriend only recently got a Facebook. My cousin, is NOT one to air her dirty laundry, and it automatically listed her relationship status as “It’s Complicated.” It’s almost as if Facebook wants to make her look like a Drama Queen airing her dirty laundry about her relationship! Then there’s the soapbox statuses, and the lyrics to those songs I made, years ago. As much as I wasn’t smart, and I was very immature (still am somewhat, but so is everybody, right?), climbing on my soapbox, for posting those, it was over three years ago. No one needs to know what happened on July 24th 2008, and no one cares either.


Facebook is about sharing what you’re up to, where you’re going, what you do, etc. It’s about connecting with your family, friends, and friends of friends, so you can meet and form a new circle of friends. It’s not about sharing what you did and giving your life story, to the point where people just don’t care. If I want to share my memories and life story that bad, I would write my whole life story on this blog. I don’t need to tell people what happened 2008. It was in 2008. In the future, I’m sure I’ll be able to go back and change those things, but will discuss that another time, and what happened on July 22nd 2008  is totally irrelevant to any sort of updated I could be sharing.


I am pretty close to deleting my Facebook, and starting fresh, so none of my annoying soapbox posts or useless information will come up and drive people nuts. If there’s a way to mass delete everything between 2008-2011 that would be awesome. Till then, feel free to sign this petition in hopes Facebook will come to their senses.


Rant Over.

I agree I don’t want the stupid timeline I’ve personally been trying to keep the old as long as i can

So have I. It’s so stupid. My hunch is that they’ll be forced to resort to classic 2008-2009 layout which is what everyone is most familiar with. The timeline has been put off because of viruses.
