Figuring out the New Facebook Timeline Profile

You all know the recent Facebook changes that are taking place, from the smart lists, to the layout, and the new whole Facebook Timeline that is going to be introduced on the 30th of September. While I was reading about the Facebook changes and all the hype over it, I was wondering if I can get to have the new Facebook before it officially launches. I have searched it on Google, and managed to figure out how to get it. The new profile have been launched for Developers to test it. 

After finalizing all the steps, I got the new profile! and .. It looks amazing!!

This is the New Facebook Timeline Profile!

    You can view the comments and likes totally differently than before! there's a Star (Feature on Timeline) button next to your posts that when you click it, the whole post expands and you get to comment, and read other comments. The other Edit button actually allows you to change the date of the post or just hide it from your timeline!

    There's a lot to discover in the new Facebook Timeline profile! Personally I believe that Facebook is doing a great job. The way they are enhancing the Facebook experience is just amazing! Facebook is becoming the log of our lives, all the dates, all the events, all the discussions, interests, comments, etc.. are being documented for us!
