    Looks like a sneaky way for them to reset your privacy settings. They seem to get reset each time they have a new layout. I'll switch to Google+ and close Facebook I think.

    No settings get reset. Troll again.
  3. Few weeks?
    It is two months now and still no mandatory migration. Any update/correction techspot?

    How is this for a mandatory migration.

    There is a facebook game my mother plays and when loaded there is a popup asking her if she wants to use a new feature. The X doesn't remove the popup. Going through the link and choosing to try the new feature tells that the new feature requires Timeline to function. So now the only way to get rid of the in-game popup is to install both Timeline and the new feature for the game.
