What's next: Facebook timeline

If you haven’t switched over from Facebook’s standard profile to timeline yet, get ready: The site will make the change for you automatically on March 24.


Timeline, an interface that encourages users to make Facebook a kind of online scrapbook of their lives, has been optional for all accounts since December. Timeline features larger “wall” photos and a huge cover photo in addition to a profile picture, and emphasizes major life events. The last time Facebook redesigned its profiles to include more photos, artists got creative, and they’re sure to do it again with timeline.


We want to see all the clever and creative ways Facebookers are using the new timeline feature. If you’re a Facebook user (and who isn’t?), how are you making your timeline unique? What new features have you used to design a nifty profile page? Share a screengrab of your Facebook profile and tell us how you’ve used the new design to create something cool. The most creative profile pages will be featured on CNN.


UPDATE: This assignment is now closed. Check out our gallery of the cleverest Facebook Timelines on CNN.com!
