Facebook is changing, again; that's not really news, since it seems to change all the time. Some people will like it, some people will hate it, and for the most part people will get used to it since they always seem to.
I turned on the new profile page, and started monkeying around. The most notable part was a nice and very usable timeline that unearthed a few gems from the not so distant past, and that also surfaced a small handful of posts that I was able to delete because I didn't want to see them again. It's remarkable that even stuff from four years ago was relatively easy to dig up; to do the same task on Twitter is impossible at the moment, and blog archive systems could learn a thing or two as well.
I'm never going to end up with all of my digital history tucked away neatly inside the Facebook world; for better or for worse, it's too messy to find and not worthwhile to even think how to relive enough of the past. Still, there's something appealing now to a system that really has a sense of time, and where things that are old don't disappear.
