Facebook’s new timeline is fairly shiny, but I wonder..

New Zealand got early access to Facebook’s new timeline feature this week. It looks shiny, however I’m wondering if it’s got potential to have an unintended side effect.

The timeline is a pretty strong reminder that Facebook likes to store anything and everything you post, or that anyone posts to you. Most technical people realise this already, however the timeline is going to make that fact really obvious to a whole group of people who’ve probably never thought or cared about this before. Could be interesting.
