Complaining about Facebook changes is a new national pastime.
This week, Facebook has finally launched its Timeline service.
Users have seven days to adopt changes before the feature becomes alive for everyone.
You may not like all of Facebook’s changes, but this one is amazing.
The service tracks all of your posts, adds notes on when you joined Facebook and most importantly allows you to document and share pictures and big events throughout your life.
You can sign up for the service here.
For more information about Facebook Timeline, Mashable has a fascinating Facebook Timeline guide.
– Speaking of Facebook, are you getting all of your e-mails through the service? Peter Shankman has a great blog post about this.
Columbus Academy families can now follow the Viking Corner on Facebook by clicking here.

Extra events will be listed as Facebook and Twitter updates.
Be sure to pass the blog along to your friends.
Steven Curtis Chapman will release his new album re:creation, on Aug. 9. The set will feature new songs as well as covers of past hits like “Speechless,” “The Great Adventure,” and “Heaven in the Real World.”
“Because God is faithful, because he is redeemer, because he is all that he promises to be, he is bringing us into a new season as a family,” Chapman recently told The Tennessean for an article. “To begin to make those steps forward is a lot of what this music and this title, re:creation, is about.” Read the full story here.
The first single from re:creation is called “Do Everything” and can be heard on Facebook.

Social media has changed the way we view news.
Television networks always argue about who can break news first, but Twitter is emerging as the champion.
I found through Twitter around 10:15 last night that Osama bin Laden was killed.
I turned the channel to CNN and they couldn’t confirm the story for another 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, while we watched the news last night, Facebook was a great way to share and comment on the breaking news with family and friends in real-time.
It was interesting to read reactions in real-time and catch up on what happened.
What a great way of sharing with your “community” of friends, family and contacts.
