Many businesses have put so much time and energy into Facebook Timeline that it’s hard to imagine it’s become worthless, and reduced to “sucking” along with the rest of Facebook. First, let’s say that whether the new design sucks, or even makes the Facebook experience creepier or not, people are still using it.

In the next blog, we’ll discuss some of these featured businesses and how they’re telling their story on the new Facebook Timeline.

In the meantime, tell us how your business is leveraging the new Facebook Timeline?
