I'm sure there are still a lot of people out there like me who have yet to switch over to Timeline on Facebook. Sure, eventually we will be forced over to T but I'm not going to do it until I absolutely have to. If you are one of the people who already have Timeline on their Facebook profile, you may be interested to hear that a new Timeline Life Event has been added.

Facebook has announced a new "Expecting a Baby" Life Event for timeline users. If you're familiar with timeline, Life Events are little baked in ways that users can express significant moments in their lives such as getting married, buying a home, or traveling to new places. Many people expecting a baby will be glad to be able to add this to the Timeline along with the hordes of pictures of their growing belly.

Facebook has also announced that users will be able to see friends that are expecting a baby from the Celebrations section of their homepage. The "Expecting a Baby" option is added to the Family & Relationships section. The new update should be available for everyone who has Timeline soon.

The feature began rolling out yesterday. The new Life Event allows you to add photos, choose the gender, select the due date, and choose when the news will be shared. Users can choose specific people or groups to share with and can optionally set the location and give a back story.
