Timeline: It's coming

You have seven days.

No, this isn't the premise of a new scary movie, but rather Facebook's recent warning to users that its new feature, Timeline, will be mandatory on January 31, according to the Facebook blog.

Facebook blogger Paul McDonald wrote "Over the next few weeks, everyone will get timeline. When you get timeline, you'll have seven days to preview what's there now. This gives you a chance to add or hide whatever you want before anyone else sees it."

When it was announced in December, there was mention that Timeline would eventually become widespread, but users weren't provided with an exact date.

Well, D-Day has arrived. You now have less than seven days to edit or delete posts and pictures that in some cases date back to when you originally signed up for the social network. Tecca explains that "if left untouched, your Timeline may remind you of breakups, job troubles or even a few unfortunate party photos you have long since buried."

For those who haven't converted yet, use this time wisely. Employers are increasingly utilizing Facebook for recruiting purposes, and a dodgy past may make or break a job opportunity.
