Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s `Friendship’ feature now in Timeline format

Timeline was made compulsory for everyone on Facebook Inc(NASDAQ:FB) this year and not everyone has taken to them kindly, and many are still barely tolerating the feature, since they have no other choice.

Now Facebook is trying to make it more palatable for everyone by making changes to the Friendship feature. Friendship has been there since 2010 and it displays interactions between a user and a friend blow by blow.

Now the social network is turning this into a Timeline profile as well to make it more interesting, especially for those who are in a relationship.

Will FB Find The Bottom Soon After The recent Slump? Find Out Here

According to Mashable - "To see the friendship page you share with anyone else, go to their profile page. Then click the gear button on the right, next to “Message,” to reveal a menu with a list of options; Friendship page is the one you want."

It is being rolled out over the next few days.

Interactions between the user and that particular friend will be available in a Timeline format along with photos. Users can remove or untag themselves from photos which they do not feel are flattering to them - though, as always, there photos are never removed but just hidden from the Timeline.

Mashable's Chris Taylor writes- "Like much else about the social network, it’s a revealing and slightly disturbing look at just how much information has been gathered on you. I tested it with a few friendships where I was sure that friend and I hadn’t been tagged in pictures together — but sure enough, there we were, often on opposite ends of the table at large dinner parties, in the Timeline-style cover photo."
