Introducing Mashable’s Facebook Timeline
We’ve closely chronicled reactions to the switch to Timeline from personal profiles in recent weeks. While many are disappointed with Facebook’s new look, the change to Timeline has been eye-opening and emotional for others.
We must admit, our experience lines up with the latter.
While exploring our Timeline, we rediscovered Mashable has been connecting with readers on Facebook since November 12, 2007. In that time, our fan page has done everything from giving our readers a place for sharing ideas and helping them secure URLs to celebrating company birthdays and making marriage proposals. Our fan base has grown from 2,000 in our first year to our current 821,000 in the past three years. Now we’re excited to form our digital scrapbook in real time — right along with you.
We’ll post a variety of updates from our Timeline: Mashable articles, videos and analysis as well as photos from events and around the office (including the adorable puppies, of course). As evidenced above, there’s a lot you can learn from Mashable‘s Facebook posts throughout the years — and we’ll continue to update with milestones as our Timeline develops. So, go ahead and take a look.
Our first cover photo represents what we’re really all about: you. It’s a picture of our real-life Facebook wall, a huge mural of avatars from all our fans who opted to be included in the project. We wanted to showcase our awesome community. Without you, Mashable wouldn’t be what it is today.
In the coming weeks, we’ll rotate our cover photo to represent what’s trending in tech and social media news. We hope it’ll be a easy and appealing way for you to know what stories to watch.
What do you think of our new Timeline so far? We’re always open to suggestions, so please let us know what kinds of posts or cover photos you’d like to see from us in the comments below. We look forward to connecting with you via Facebook Timeline!
