Facebook's Timeline feature, in which your past events, status updates and other posts are ordered by date and easily navigable, has received mixed reviews. Regardless, Facebook Timeline will be mandatory for all users shortly. In other words, anybody with access to your profile will be able to easily cruise through all your past Facebook activity with greater ease.
If you have something you'd like to erase, you'll have a little time to do it (seven days from when the switch is made before your Facebook Timeline goes public). However, it's also a good time to reconsider how your Facebook privacy settings are configured. Frankly, it may be a good time to consider slimming down your friend list.
The exact timing is not totally clear -- according to a blog post from Facebook, "Over the next few weeks, everyone will get timeline. When you get timeline, you'll have 7 days to preview what's there now."
In any case, more information is readily available on the soon-to-be-mandatory Facebook Timeline at www.facebook.com/about/timeline. Or check out tghe below video from Facebook for more insight:
