I wish with timeline you could delete anything that was older than say, 6-8 months, with the option of keeping photos. I'd really like to start fresh. I viewed my timeline, and there's posts from 4-5 years ago of me wasted during my university time. There's just too much stuff to delete individually.

I'm no longer a 17 year old fresher, so I'd not like people to be able to snoop and see what 17 year old me looked like and did.

Suprisingly good

Done very elegantly indeed, who is the UI designer responsible for this? I think facebook mobile UI is actually pretty innovative!

Some of you might find interesting Facebook app evolution since its release in 2007 (http://www.wecruise.co.uk/blog/off-topic/facebook-app-ui-masterclass)

Lets just hope they stay on top of bugs :(
