Facebook Timeline Creates a New Self-Marketing Tool

This past week, Facebook introduced the Facebook Timeline, a new type of profile that outlines a user’s life on Facebook. Some have complained that it’s too personal (it displays all the information that Facebook has collected on a person since their sign up), while some are excited to see how the new format evolves and the user benefits it offers.

The creative types here at eCollegeFinder are excited for the possibilities the new “timeline cover” brings for displaying your individuality and marketing yourself.   SaveDelete.com recently posted an article on the most innovative covers they’ve seen. We highly suggest checking it out and using these examples as inspiration to create a “timeline cover resume” to market your own personal brand. (Facebook Timeline isn’t available for Facebook’s business “pages” yet, so unfortunately, the redesign of eCollegeFinder’s Facebook page will have to wait…)

Have you switched to the new Facebook Timeline yet? What do you think of it? Have you used the timeline cover to do something creative? Let us know in the comments below!
