    What were they using the IKKK for? I'm confused.

    i think IKKK is the same as "Yuck!" I think Ann is referring to the timeline feature on the right side of the screen that is basically stalking your friends' activities on other pages. :-)

    When I'm doing Facebook for business purposes, I use a custom app that lets me focus on the interactions. No ads, no timeline, just my posts and the reactions to my posts.

    Ann that's going to be the look of everyone's page starting next week. Facebook announced this back in September and some people have already been using it. Now they're rolling it out to everyone. You can go to Facebook's page announcing timeline to see what your timeline will look like and to activate it now if you wish. Even if you don't choose to activate it now, it'll become active on December 22nd.

    It's Facebook's way of taking everything you've ever said or done on Facebook and making it more accessible to everyone. I went through earlier and removed some things from my Timeline, that I didn't think needed to be kept public.

    I'm not crazy about the look of Timeline, but I'm not crazy about the look of Facebook in general. I've always thought it's a more confusing place than it needs to be and it's a bland design at best. I will say that after playing with it for a few minutes I did think it was easier to find some things in the new timeline so that's good.

    Yep, that's the timeline you saw down the middle of the page. I remember when they first started showing it I thought it looked nicer than it finally did. In the end I assume everyone will get used to the new Facebook.

    You have the option to switch to the new look now, though most people probably aren't aware of it yet, so most people are still showing the old layout. Over the next week you'll probably see more of the new layout and then on the 22nd it'll be the only layout.

    I think we all have to get used to it. I remember when people started seeing it a few months back some people loved it and others hated it. Guess that's usual for any Facebook change or change in general. I'm sure next week and the one after we'll be seeing all kind of posts about how Facebook just ruined the internet and also posts about how they just saved it.

    I'm sure we'll get used to the changes once they've been with us for a time.

    I switched over to the timeline today and I'm enjoying it. I like being able to go back and see what I was talking about six months ago. So, far, I haven't found it too confusing.
