How To Enable Your Facebook Timeline View Profile [Video]

Yesterday, I posted an article about Facebook Timeline which will be the next face of your profile page. Unfortunately, this is not yet enabled by default. But if you visit Facebook’s Timeline official page, you can subscribe to their page to notify you once Timeline is officially out.  Anyway, you can actually enable your Facebook Timeline and experience it now first hand even if it is not officially implemented.  I can show you how you can enable it on your registered Facebook account given that you have access to create an application on Facebook developers page. The process of registering an account to Facebook developers is easy and as far as I could remember you’ll need to register your mobile number for them to provide you your PIN.

Now, about enabling your Facebook Timeline (BETA Version).
