Facebook Introduces “Timeline”

If you have 37 minutes to spare, watch this video featuring Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduce all that’s new (there’s a lot!) with the leading social network. Some quick highlights:

  • Timeline – a completely redesigned profile which will show the “story of your life.” This is a major update! Read up on it by visiting the first impressions article on Mashable.
  • New Apps – applications that will allow you to listen or watch what your friends are listening to or watching.
  • Video Streaming – partnerships with Hulu, Netflix, DirectTV, etc. will eventually allow you to know what your friends are watching.

Here’s a quick video introducing Timeline. Note Facebook’s use of emotional connection. It’s easier to sell something tied to an emotional or esteem need.

What do you think? Is Facebook heading in the right direction with these changes?
