Some where, at some time, I know someone is going to try this. Not being the sharpest tools in the shed, murderers and thieves might actually think this is going to work.
(It won’t. But I know you’ll try it anyway)
Yes, the title and subject are there just for the intrigue. In reality, I wanted to show how easy it is to add past events (real ones not the alibi kind) to your timeline. These could be the birth of a child, a wedding, a vacation or anything important you like.
While you may not yet have the timeline enabled on your profile it’s coming to everyone soon enough.
When it does go live you have a few choices.
- You can just start posting timeline worthy stuff moving forward, and / or
- You can start adding past events (retro posts) like I illustrate here.
I’ll bet most Facebook users don’t want the hassle of adding a ton of past events. We live in the here and now. They’ll add a few of the major ones and then just start using Facebook like they always have. It’s a pain to locate the picture, get the date and location, tag the right people and get it all right.
P.S. You can always go back and edit, change the dates etc. As a test the first retro post I did was for my wedding. I ‘purposely’ chose the wrong date. Luckily, I was able to change it – PHEW!
P.S.S. You can always surrender to the police. Yeah, you know exactly who I’m talking to. Besides, it’s a lot better than their busting your door down at 5 am (again).
P.S.S.S. 800-78-CRIME or http://www.wetip.com/ Just in case for all you other folks.
So what will you retro post?
He's an avid hockey fan, rides a mountain bike, sometimes rides a road bike, has a few motorcycles (he had a really fast one, bought a cool orange one, rode a really slow one, and wants a really small one). If that isn't enough, he makes cheese and sourdough bread, loves strong beer and good red wine, and poorly plays the Mandolin.
