Facebook Announces New Apps for Timeline

After mixed reactions from users, Facebook has now declared that it's here to stay by opening up new apps for Facebook timeline.

According to Carl Sjogreen, Product Manager at Facebook, "We recently launched Timeline to give you a way to collect and rediscover your most important moments. Starting today, you can choose from more than 60 new apps to add to your timeline and express what you love.

Some of the new timelines that are available include Foodspotting,Foodily, Ticketmaster,Pinterest, Rotten Tomatoes,Pose, Kobo, Gogobot, and TripAdvisor, among others. So whether you want to eat, travel, track reviews or watch a movie, Facebook would let you do all at peace.

Enhance your timeline with apps

It's now an effortless task to update your timeline with all your interest. These apps would add your interesting events, experiences and interests for you, as they happen. As Sjorgreen says, "If you love to cook, you can add the Foodily app to your timeline and share your latest dishes. If your friends have added the Foodily app, you can discover new recipes with each other, as you'll see their updates in the ticker and their timeline, and possibly News Feed.

If you're a traveler, you can add the Gogobot and TripAdvisor apps to bring a virtual passport to your timeline, and show your where you've been and share tips about your favorite spots from around the world.

Soon, there will be apps for all types of interests, as more apps will launch over time. Whether you love snowboarding, gardening, hiking, or knitting, or something else, there will be an app for you."

Apps on your timeline

Timeline apps are designed to let you share your favourite activities chronologically as they happen with your friends. You can choose when to add an app, and you can also decide who sees it. Onve you've added an app, you can remove posts directly from timeline, or edit your settings from your personal Activity Log.
