Facebook timeline is one of the latest and most radical changes in the history of the popular social network site’s design in recent times. There are a lot of people who feel that this is Mark Zuckerberg’s biggest gamble till date and the feature is still receiving mixed reviews from everyone. At first look, it is quite obvious that this feature opens doors for identity theft, which is a matter of serious concern for all individuals. So, how much of your pre-Facebook information do you want to show on Facebook? It depends entirely on the individual to choose which information they want to risk being exploited by the social network. Compared to LinkedIn another question would be will this information be useful in any way to us other than probably helping us build a family tree and as a time capsule for future generation? The information in the profile pages is in control of Facebook and also its partners and advertisers, which again raises privacy issues. Also the new look timeline does not appeal to people of the slightly older generation. But let’s hope for Zuckerberg’s sake that the release of Timeline will be a ‘highlight’ in his own.

Businesses can exploit the Facebook timeline profitably. Here are the 5 ways in which businesses can use this new feature to enhance their brands with their current and prospective fans:

  1. The Cover Image – this is an important space for advertising to engage customers. Use this space as creatively as possible. Facebook has stringent rules such as no contact information or calls to action. However, you can use this space to promote any latest promotional events or contests. Also this space is something to watch out for as new ideas for utilizing may pop up in the near future.
  2. Timeline - Companies can display their long-standing traditions, values on which they were initially founded, illustrating their meagre beginnings and their growth to their present one. This can be used to touch a sentimental chord with your customers and if done right it can also get back your long-lost customers.
  3. About link – Businesses should provide the complete and right information here including snippets about the company’s founders and other interesting facts which a user wouldn’t usually find on the company’s official website.
  4. Facebook products and services - Timeline brings rich variety of posts with amazing possibility of highlighting important ones. Use “Resize” to extend the status message or photo collection with top priority. This way you can attract the attention of your visitors to feature products, services, important achievements, major updates, hot news or awards.
  5. Timeline apps – Facebook has launched around 80 Timeline applications to help users carry most of their online activities directly from Facebook. Just like fan page apps, these applications will store the all information of your activities in chronological order and display it on the Timeline.

At the end of the day, don’t forget to track your brand page activity and tie it back to measurable goals. Use Facebook’s Insights and Google’s Social Reports to understand the demographics of the users visiting your page so that you can design content appropriate to them. The timeline feature is still in its nascent stage and brands and individuals are trying to find their way around it. Things will definitely improve over a period of time, but as a first step brands must make an effort to guide fans around the new page layout and notify the availability of new content and functionality.  Don’t make the mistake of assuming that your users are in the loop.

Marketers have to keep in mind that page editors no longer have the ability to set targeted landing tabs or applications for non-fans. In the past you could direct people into a particular tab to encourage likes or interaction with a promotion. So brands have to drive engagement more than ever.

Facebook has launched a fully revamped Facebook Questions, where the user can ask questions and share it with their friends. Facebook users can ask a question by clicking the "Ask Question" button at the top of the homepage, or ask questions about friends from their profile page. Users can also add photo or poll to questions. The user's friends are found to be the most likely source of information or advice in a social network and they can also answer to user's questions. Facebook users can concur with an answer by checking a box, or include a different response in the comments section.  All answers to Facebook Questions are shown on the question's page.

Facebook had started this question-and-answer service last July by the Facebook developer, modelled after Quora, and they have been testing with a limited number of users.
