Coming off the release of Timeline worldwide this morning, Facebook has also announced Timeline’s launch on both the mobile web (at m.facebook.com) and the Android Facebook app, downloadable from the Android Market here. This ties in to Facebook’s strategy to permeate not just the desktop environment, but also the ever-expanding mobile market with their new user interface for profiles, which was originally announced this early fall in September.
Facebook describes Timeline as a “Mobile timeline (that) starts with your unique cover photo. As you scroll down, you’ll see your posts, photos and life events as they happened, back to the day you were born. Photo albums and other posts are horizontally swipeable, so you can quickly view multiple photos or posts inline without leaving timeline. You can also swipe through the views at the top of your timeline to navigate to your map, photos, subscribers and more.”
Also, user posts now appear in several different ways on your mobile timeline. Photos shared are depicted in a more scaled way, and a new map is introduced, that shows which friends you’re with and geographical places that you visit.
