    How to: Enable the new Facebook Timeline profile beforehand! (Developer Beta Access)



    Facebook introduced their new profile type 'Timeline' not a long ago. The change will take place in everyone's
    profiles eventually, but now the feature is in beta and can be accessed by Facebook Developers only.

    Preview of the timeline: Introducing Timeline | Facebook

    As a Facebook App Developer I got my beta profile (even though I haven't released a single app)
    so I thought "if I got it, everyone else should be able to as well!". I went and did a research and
    as it appears, everyone is able to trick themselves to the timeline developer beta with these simple
    steps:

    1 ) Install "Developer" application
    2 ) Create a new application
    3 ) Give the application a name
    -App Display Name
    -App Namespace
    4 ) Enable "Open Graph"
    5 ) Name your Open Action
    -E.g. "People can eat a sandwich"
    6 ) Press next on all the 3 following pages
    7 ) Go back to your profile
    8 ) Accept the new layout

    Hope some of you find this useful!
    Enjoy!

    Completed 1-6, back on my profile and I don't see anywhere to accept a new layout?

    Edit: Nevermind Opera doesn't seem to want to use many of facebooks feature, worked on FF/Chrome.

    [How to] Get the New facebook Timeline



    Timeline is a new facebook feature which will be coming sometime in october if everything goes well.

    If you want to read more about it, simply google it..

    Step 1:
    Get a developer account. http://developers.facebook.com/apps

    Step 2:
    Click on Create a new app - It wont affect you, but it is needed.

    Step 3:
    Just type in some Gibberish in Display Name and Namespace.. Could be OwnedCore in DisplayName and alksdjasdgrwe in Namespace.

    Step 4:
    Click "Open Graph" followed by "Getting Started" - This is in the left column.

    Step 5:
    Just type some gibberish again, like "read" a "pink rollercoaster"

    Step 6:
    Fill in the next step with gibberish as you wish..

    When you are done with that (should take 3 mins) you can go to your profile and you will be asked if you would like the new timeline layout for your profile.. It looks okay, but you might want to restrict what people can see. (If you should forget to log off - since your profile layout is only viewable for other devs).

    Enjoy.

    MERGED WITH THIS THREAD SINCE I DIDNT SEE IT!

    The real question now, is how do you remove it? I don't like it.
