The First time fb Timeline is used for an ad purpose - anti-drugs campaign, where various images ordered in timeline told the story of fictional character Adam Barak’s two lives: one getting addicted to drugs, another staying clean. In a ‘split page’ style you can retrace Adam’s choices and stages of demise (or happiness). Eventually the profile was removed by fb authorities for breaking its terms of service. <src:[3]

Moreover could it be a media object, predicted by Facebook? How do you browse through time and what is the 'online time'?
