Timeline features milestones of one's life on a single page, a blog-like presentation that let users scrolls vertically through the big moments.

"It's how you can tell the whole story of your life in a single page," said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who introduced the feature in September starting from his baby photo.
