Facebook Timeline: Creepy or Creative?

Many will argue that the new Facebook Timeline is creative, unique, and awesome. Others will argue a very different side of the argument. Is Facebook becoming too creepy? With the new Timeline feature, some may worry that some of the past will come back up and be shown to the whole world. Some articles say that without removing things from Facebook that were not intended for the public eye, someone would find the items via Timeline and bring it back up and show it to the whole world. One article paraphrases Mark Zuckerburg at the Timeline debut saying that the Timeline is a way to roll out someone’s life to the whole world. Also, Timeline will not be something that can be chosen to have on profiles– Facebook will just change profiles to Timeline without notice. This could be a big surprise for the person who is just a periodic, once a week, visitor to Facebook.
