UPDATED: The trademark lawsuit against Facebook by Timelines.com over the social network’s use of the term “timeline” as the name of its profile design was set to kick off Monday in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois in Chicago, but Bloomberg reported Monday afternoon that proceedings would be delayed until Tuesday afternoon, or postponed until May 7 for a status conference. U.S. District Judge John W. Darrah offered no explanation for the delay, according to Bloomberg.
The 2000′s were a simpler era. There was no timeline, MySpace was still the social network of choice, and everything on Facebook wasn’t broadcast to the world. So when people started crying foul that Facebook was publishing private messages, they were misguided. Facebook’s timeline shows wall posts from 2009 and before, when many people used the wall feature to post messages they believed only the recipient would read.
A setting available to timeline pages promises the ability to hide wall comments until an administrator approves them, but the setting has yet to work as described.
