Facebook: All 955M Users To Timeline By Fall

Facebook has a message for those users who are still clinging to their old profiles for dear life: Your time will come, by this fall, to be exact, when you will be migrated to timeline, like it or not.

The social network officially introduced the new profile layout on NBC’s “Today” in December, and it has gradually been automatically converting those who hadn’t made the switch voluntarily.

Facebook told TechCrunch its goal is to have all 955 million of its users on the same interface by this fall, adding that at some point before year-end, holdouts will see a prompt to switch when they log in, giving them the same seven-day period those who are already on timeline had to curate all of their content.

Readers who are still on the old profile: Are you dreading this?
