Facebook timeline tricks
1. Resize a event that you think is more important. Facebook gives you two sizing options – one with full screen width and other is half. The resize button on a event allows you to toggle between the full one and the half.
2. Remove events and posts that you think are not something you would be so proud of sharing in your public profile. Use the edit option in your timeline item to cull out the unnecessary and curate your public view.
3. Check how your friends and the public are going to see your profile. Use the View as tool under your cover photo to enter a specific user’s name and see how they will be seeing your profile timeline. This way you can make sure you are not over exposing too much to your ex-boyfriend, for example.
4. Manage your subscriptions easily. Say you have a subscribed to a bunch of photographers but are interested only a few updates from them and not all of what they post. You can control what posts you want to see from those you follow. Go to subscriptions tile under your cover image and then control your individual subscriptions, but clicking the subscribed button on the right of people you follow.
5. Do you hate some of the pesky ads that are completely irrelevant to you? You can ask Facebook to hide them from you. Go to the ad and click on the “X” button on the right top and choose a hide option:
7. Say you had an important event on February 1, 2010 but were too busy writing a status message then. Don’t worry. Now you can add an event at any point of your timeline, by clicking on the middle of the timeline bar and choosing add a life event.
8. If you are not comfortable with showing your past posts to public, then you can hit the nuclear button to hide all the old posts from anybody who is not your friend, by going to the privacy settings on the right top. This cannot be easily undone.
