Starting March 30, all brand pages, like company or band pages, will have to convert to the Timeline. Recently, many people including myself, have converted to the Timeline. But, brand pages like bands or companies often would not convert to Timeline, because on the Timeline, those brand pages would have to completely redecorate. Brand pages won't be happy about it, but there's almost nothing any of us can do about it.
This article interested me because I recently switched my profile to Timeline. Personally, I like the Timeline better than the old Facebook layout, but many people do not. I think that it is not fair for Facebook to forcibly convert the Facebook layout into Timeline, but the writer was true in that we cannot do anything about it. This article relates to our class because Facebook is a social networking class that has evolved so much that part of it has become a storage device for our photos and documents. If our school administration allowed us to use Facebook in school, we could communicate with each other in a much more effective and efficient way.
