I added the cover photo to my face book when I log in I get the old format and my latest info.


If I click on home link  at the top of the FB page I get the time line no new info


Did I miss some thing to make the time line cover show

I’m not sure exactly what’s going on with your facebook page, but here are a couple of thoughts:

  1. Your timeline is not the same thing as your home page.  When you first log in to Facebook, you’re on your Home page, which is your News Feed.  Your Timeline is the same thing as your Profile, click on your name in the upper right to get to your Profile/timeline/wall
  2. If you are indeed looking at your profile and it is not in the new timeline format, then you need to visit https://www.facebook.com/about/timeline and click the button to Get Timeline.

Let us know if that helps.

I’ve been avoiding Timeline since it started.  But you motivated me to make a cover collage and update to Timeline.  Fun!  Visit my FB site to see the cover.
