Ashim Sunam, commenting on the development, said, “Inspite of the fact that I myself have changed my profile page to timeline, I feel that this mandatory thing will not go well with the people as everyone likes to have an option. What was the need to remove that option?” An IT professional and an ardent Facebook user Nikita said, “I don't understand why the people are being disappointed as what would they have done if the timeline was the initial setup. I am sure then they would not have a problem. We as people do not like change and that is what is happening in facebook also.
The people, who are yet to switch to the timeline mode, are being given a preview of how their page will look in the future. Vikrant, an online media journalist says, “I love the timeline and I feel every website should upgrade themselves with time. Facebook has done it time and again and people have loved it. Facebook is all about pictures and with the timeline that aspect comes to the limelight.” Even Niharita Singh accepts this and says, “I normally don't have the inclination to read anything on Facebook and so with timeline pictures are highlighted and I normally visit my friend's profile and just look and get half of the latest update. More over it is less cluttered.
There are many who might ask, “What is the need of two pictures, one profile and another cover,” and there are some like Ashim who would love to have the option to choose but moreover everyone is looking forward to the change and would definitely not stop surfing the site because of the change. With time, even the the timeline would be a lovable part of Facebook.
