Facebook today announced its controversial new timeline feature, giving users a seven-day grace period to remove photos they don’t want visible on it. The feature will go live in late December, Facebook reps said. Given privacy concerns, I was especially interested today in a YouTube video regarding a European who asked for — and received — more than 1,200 PDF files of data on him that Facebook had collected.
According to the YouTube user who posted this video a month ago, Austrian student Max Schrems asked Facebook to send every shred of info it had on them. Facebook sent Schrems the CD with more than 1,200 plus PDF files.
Here’s the video.
Beginning today, you’ll see a button offering you to enable the feature.
And here’s the grace period warning. Look at all those embarrassing pics now while you still can.
