Who am I? ask Timeline victims

31-08-12

FACEBOOK’S Timeline upgrade has left users unable to remember who their friends are, who their family is or even their own birthday.

Am I a young woman, or a middle-aged Chinese man?

Timeline became mandatory for all Facebook users this August, which according to Timeline is March 2017.

Many users have expressed dissatisfaction with aspects of the redesign, citing the concept, execution  and entire idea as among the main problems.

Facebook user Nikki Hollis said: “It used to be so easy. Stuff was there in chronological order and I knew who my friends were. Everything about me, about life, was clear.

“But now, Christ knows.

“Who is Ben Trafford? Why has he posted a video? Why am I being told that he’s posted a video? Am I Ben Trafford?

“Why does my life now look like the contents page of an issue of Smash Hits from 1987?”

28-year-old Stephen Malley said:  “It’s left me feeling like my existence is a Lost-style TV series. Perhaps I’m dead, and Facebook is some sort of limbo, a puzzle that must be unlocked before I can move on to higher spirit realm.”

Sales manger Emma Bradford said: “Why do I now have to have a massive landscape image at the top of my profile page that expresses something about me? I’m a woman, not a B & B in the Cotswolds.

“Also, why has a status update about the weather I wrote a month ago surfaced again, like the body of an improperly-weighted mafia hit bobbing up out of a lake?

“If Facebook continues to impose Timeline on me, I shall have no option but to take the most direct action ever taken by anyone with a Facebook account – complain about it loudly for a month and then not do anything.”

A Facebook spokesman said: “Timeline was developed in accordance with quantum theory. You see, with Timeline, it’s possible to know both who you are and what you’re doing – just not both at the same time.”
