Facebook adds Timeline to iPhone app

The new Facebook iPhone app adds the new Timeline layout mobile - iPad users will have to wait.

Facebook Timeline 

Facebook's new profile layout, Timeline, is designed to be a better way to "tell your life story." Timeline was supposed to roll out a few weeks after its September debut, but we still haven't seen it (in mass effect) as of early December.

It also adds the subscribe to page feature that the company added along with it's revamp of news feed.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
