One of the major changes that have been added to Facebook is the Facebook Timeline. Timeline essentially overhauled the very interface of a user profile. While it was embraced with open arms by many for its sleek looks, others had been suspicious because of privacy concerns as Timeline seemed to be making public a lot of things they wouldn’t want to be public.


It has been quite some time since Facebook launched the Timeline. However, what is surprising is that a lot of users still have concerns over it and are not very comfortable with it. This has been revealed through a new report by Webroor, which is a security solutions provider.

According to the report, a whopping 82 percent of the users who were included in the survey were concerned about Facebook Timeline because they thought it may somehow interfere with their privacy. The concerns are quite valid since Timeline goes on to display nearly everything from a user profile on a ‘timeline.’

What triggered the concern of most of the users was the fact that Facebook has made it obligatory for users to switch to Timeline. It is an automatic opt-in feature which is mandatory for Facebook users. This essentially takes away the right to choose from the user and hands it to Facebook.

However, what is interesting is that while a majority of the users were concerned about their privacy due to Timeline, they didn’t do much to take care of it when they eventually switched to Timeline. Only one-third of them tweaked their profiles and privacy settings to actively guard their privacy. The report included 1637 internet users aged 18 and older from a number of regions including US, UK, Australia and Singapore.
