Has your social life shifted into high gear lately? Facebook thinks so, hence the launch of Timeline Apps, giving users a wide variety of ways to share what you’re currently doing.
As mentioned earlier, the addition of apps is part of Facebook’s Open Graph Actions feature, allowing app makers to give users a more unique look and feel.
Fancy cooking up a new dish? Check out the Foodily app or Foodspotting. Seen a movie recently? there’s Rotten Tomatoes for your timeline. Other apps available are available at the launch such as Ticketmaster, Gogobot, Trip Advisor and many others.
The good thing about Facebook’s latest is you get to have specific apps for your timeline, and get to share it with your friends instantly. There’s also an option whom to share it with of course, which you can customise upon adding the app.
Facebook has already officially rolled out its new Timeline and Ticker as part of its Open Graph revamp. Now it looks possible that Facebook may be unveiling its new Open Graph Actions feature, that it will be adding to its new re-design according to the AllThingsD website.
The announcement by Facebook may be made as early as tomorrow, with Facebook unveiling their new service which enables apps made by outside developers, to “frictionlessly” and continuously share Facebook users’ actions. Once a user has given permission to the application to do so.
Developers have been busy coding their new applications since last September, and have been waiting for Facebook to make the announcement and officially launch their new Open Graph Actions service. Enabling developers to then make their new applications available to Facebook users.
Facebook has already organised an event which will take place tomorrow and has even issued press invitations so lets hope its something exciting to report. Even though it’s not 100% guaranteed that Facebook will make the announcement, tomorrow night in San Francisco, the timing of the event is similar to that of other similar announcements.
As more information becomes available from the announcement in San Francisco tomorrow, we will keep you updated on events as always.
In seguito all’introduzione del nuovo profilo Facebook chiamato Timeline (o diario) ed il recente aggiornamento dell’ applicazione per iPhone che aggiunge il supporto a tale funzionalità, 9to5Mac ha annunciato che il noto social network porterà la funzione Timeline anche per su iPad all’inizio del prossimo anno.
Timeline è un nuovo modo di concepire il proprio profilo, un’estensione della propria pagina Facebook che permette a chiunque di creare un vero e proprio diario dove condividere tutti i momenti speciali della propria vita. Consente, infatti, di navigare nel passato e selezionare immagini, attività, informazioni, foto e applicazioni che abbiamo utilizzato, condiviso e commentato negli anni su Facebook.
La nuova funzionalità gira abbastanza bene sul sito mobile di Facebook, così come per quello desktop e sull’applicazione per iPhone. Per quanto riguarda Facebook per iPad, invece, l’aggiornamento dovrebbe essere un mix tra la versione desktop e l’applicazione per iPhone ed iPod Touch:
Il grande Multi-Touch consentirà di avere una versione di Timeline molto intuitiva e sarà una fusione tra la versione web e la versione touch per iPhone/iPod. Si tratta di una versione touch screen ottimizzata per un’esperienza web migliore.
La funzione sarebbe dovuta approdare sui terminali iPad già dalla fine di quest’anno, ma a causa di alcuni bug dell’ultimo minuto ed alcuni problemi riscontrati in fase di testing, c’è stato il rinvio del lancio.
After a few weeks delay Facebook has today finally started rolling out its new Facebook Timeline feature to its users. If you are registered as a developer you will have already been able to use the new Timeline feature. But is you haven’t the Timeline has been designed by Facebook to provide a “new way of expressing who you are,” says Facebook.
Enabling you to see all the important updates from your Facebook account in one place in a ore visual experience. Previously you would have needed to click on the ‘Older Posts’ link at the bottom of someone’s profile to find these.
The new Facebook Timeline also allows you to customise your view by hiding or displaying the areas you are more interested in. It will also allows you to now view your private Activity Log, that will let you view everything you shared since you opened your Facebook account.
Per prepararci al lancio del terzo episodio della serie Modern Warfare, Activision ha rilasciato un trailer che ci rinfresca la memoria, riassumendo la trama fantapolitica e militare piuttosto intricata e complessa della saga firmata Infinity Ward, in stile timeline.
Appuntamento quindi all’8 novembre per scoprire l’epilogo di una storia, che ci ha condotti alla terza guerra mondiale. Buona visione.
When Acer unveiled its first Timeline laptops in 2009, these slim numbers felt like a revelation. Imagine: thin notebooks rated to last hours and hours on a charge and priced well under a grand! Fast-forward two years and that proposition seems a bit quaint, doesn’t it? Pretty much every PC maker has been working on slimming down their wares and extending battery life with — shall we say? – mixed results. Still, Acer has kept on keeping, and its latest TimelineX laptops carry the torch as thin, long-lasting and inexpensive. As always, the company released Timelines in assorted screen sizes, ranging from 13.3 to 15.6 inches. We took a look at the 15-incher, the $800 AS5830, which promises to last up to nine hours unplugged and also packs a discrete graphics card – a feature many of its competitors have been skipping. But are impressive battery life and a relatively trim physique enough to make this notebook stand out in a crowded field of inexpensive, good-enough laptops? Let’s see.
If Acer’s current Aspire TimelineX notebooks look a little too dull for your tastes, have a peek at that industrial-looking number in the picture above. The company just redesigned its line of skinny laptops, and refreshed them with Sandy Bridge processors while it was at it. The 13.1-inch 3830T, 14-inch 4830T, and 15.6-inch 5830T all have that two-tone aluminum design (also available in black), along with USB 3.0, a choice of Core i3 and Core i5 CPUs, and Acer’s clear.fi software for sharing media among DLNA devices. The 14- and 15.6-inch versions have onboard optical drives and number pads, and, on select models, you can choose a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT520M or GT540M card. However, the screen resolution is going to be 1366 x 768 regardless of which you pick. The 3830T, 4830T, and 5830T are available now, starting at $799, $699, and $599, respectively, and you can find specs for a handful of models after the break.
If you’ve been waiting for Sandy Bridge to land on Acer’s Timeline X laptops, then today’s your day. Well, it depends, as these new machines are only available in Taiwan for the time being. Just a few hours ago, the lucky folks over at Engadget Chinese managed to get up close and personal with these bad boys: we have a couple of 13.3-inch 3830TGs (pictured after the break), a 14-inch 4830TG, and a 15.6-inch 5830TG (pictured above). With the exception of Core i3-2310M on one of the 3830TGs, these laptops all come with Core i5-2410M, NVIDIA GT540M (with 2GB DDR3 RAM), 640GB hard drive, 2GB DDR3 RAM, and USB 3.0 ports. As for multimedia, sitting below the 1,366 x 768 LED-backlit LCDs are Dolby Home Theater speakers by Kenwood, and additionally, the two larger models also pack a DVD Super Multi DL drive.
