Some people enjoy Timeline and that's fine. I prefer to be more private. I do not want every biographical detail of my life available online, especially since identity theft is so rampant. Even without the privacy factor, I still resent the fact that Facebook is not giving its users a choice. I'm sure many people share the same opinion.
This is the message I and countless others received on Facebook.
Welcome to Your Timeline — Preview
Timeline is your collection of the photos, posts and experiences that help tell your story. People won't start seeing your timeline until September 4. This gives you a chance to:
1. Review what's on your timeline now.
2. Add or hide whatever you want.

I am finding Facebook increasingly dictatorial and intrusive.
