Timeline also in IPB?

44 posts in this topic

Timeline in Users Profile. Why not? :) Maybe a good idea! (I know, facebook are using the timeline, this doesn't say we can't use it).

Oh, Crap. Please don't tell us that IPS is considering this! I'm sorry but this is the worst feature ever to be created. If someone wants to create this as a hook or third party application, then I say go for it. But don't let this be a core or default feature of the forums.

When it comes to Facebook linking, I don't have a problem with the "share" feature but when it's being suggested to "copy" features from Facebook ... I'd rather see IPS develop original features for the forum software. Personally, I prefer IPB to remain its own software, not simply relying on what other companies are creating. Next thing you see, we'll have "frenemies", "relationship status" and other similar features that Facebook already uses.

Next thing you know we'll see? Twitter-related features. lols :sweat:

That was just an idea. That's a little funny, I am not using the timeline on facebook but wondered if it could be a nice app for IPB (built-in or as an app released on MP).

I believe what you are looking for is this:

A: This.
B: Why would you take the one thing driving people AWAY from FB that actually ..... i dunno, enjoyed it, and try to get it into the core of IPB?

I don't know anyone who likes the timeline on FB




Damn few. I use FB about once a week, and then only to keep in touch with family and a few friends I don't meet online.

When they added the Timeline feature I came really close to closing my account permanently. It is the absolute pits for layout and usability.

The problem is that Facebook has almost the same number of spammers on their social network as they do actual members. That's what happens when you have such a large number of users as well as things like Facebook games and such, they're actually probably data mining the site for credit card info, checking accounts and what not.
