Every active user on Facebook has a Timeline or an archive of the user’s personal activity that they have chosen to make public. Uploaded photos, videos, posts that the user has shared, and posts that the user has been tagged in could all potentially be visible on their Timeline. The Timeline is great for preserving memories over time, but not everyone wants all of their activity and information to visible to everyone. Fortunately, Facebook has created privacy controls that allow users to opt-in to reviewing and filtering content that is allowed on their Timeline. In this article, we’ll guide you through how to turn on Timeline review.

Timeline: An Overview

You can find your timeline by simply clicking on your name in the top right-hand navigation. This will take you to your profile. Your profile may be set up in one of two different layouts, depending on if you’re using Classic Facebook or the New Facebook. Regardless, when you navigate to your profile, you’ll land on your Timeline by default. The differences between the two layouts are minimal, but we’ve included a screenshot of each below with an arrow pointing out the Timeline tab.
