Guide: How to get the new Facebook Timeline Profile [easy steps]

So today at F8 Conference facebook revealed something really awesome, they unveiled new features of Facebook which will totally changed the looks of Facebook and transform it into something new. So if you didn't missed the event you would know Facebook revealed the new Timeline Profile which totally change the layout of your profile. It's available for Developers only, as it is not available right now for users so Techcrunh got some time to write a detailed guide on How to get Facebook Timeline Feature in just simple steps. See those simple steps below, perform them correctly and get the new Timeline Profile:

Important note:
- You probably don’t want to do this unless you’re actually a developer. Expect bugs.
- Only you will see your timeline at first (unless you decide otherwise), but your timeline will take over your homepage after a few days. My timeline was automatically hard-set to go public on September 29th.
- It seems that if you login into Facebook on another machine, Timeline gets disabled automatically on all of your machines. With that said, it seems you can get back to your timeline (but ONLY after following the steps below) by navigating to
- You’ll need to have a “verified” account for one of the steps, which means you need a credit card or phone number attached to the account.
Here’s how to Activate And Enable Facebook Timeline Right Now:
  • Log into Facebook
  • Enable developer mode, if you haven’t already. To do this, type “developer” into the search box, click the first result (it should be an app made by Facebook with a few hundred thousand users), and add the app.
  • Jump into the developer app (if Facebook doesn’t put you there automatically, it should be in your left-hand tool bar)
  • Create a new app (don’t worry — you wont actually be submitting this for anyone else to see/use). Give your shiny new app any display name and namespace you see fit. Read through and agree to the Platform Privacy agreement. This is the step you need to be verified for.
  • Ensure you’re in your new app’s main settings screen. You should see your app’s name near the top of the page
  • Look for the “Open Graph” header, and click the “Get Started using open graph” link.
  • Create a test action for your app, like “read” a “book”, or “eat” a “sandwich”
  • This should drop you into an action type configuration page. Change a few of the default settings (I changed the past tense of “read” to “redd” — again, only you can see this unless you try and submit your application to the public directory), and click through all three pages of settings
  • Wait 2-3 minutes
  • Go back to your Facebook homescreen. An invite to try Timeline should be waiting at the top of the page
