A very useful tutorial, thanks for posting

Trying it doesn’t really make that much sense since you and your ‘fellow’ devs are the only ones who can see this. Also this is going to be made available shortly.

Regardless of that, I still tried it myself and I know some of you still will. 🙂

Inspite of it that i don’t want to enable it but i have read your post and learn all this process, how to enable it may be in future i feel i should enable it. These kind of technical things should be discussed from all blogger and should keep in mind that your post should be easier as possible (like your post) that people may learn from it.

why does facebook seem so unreliable these days?

I only knew about the facebook timeline because of my friend’s FB status. Looks like they are integrating features of some popular sites that I personally think makes Facebook a bit complicated. Now, we could actually have a plurk style concept on our Facebook account. Anyway, I will follow your steps and try this to my own FB account. Thanks!
