Timeline Envy…

September 27, 2011

Last post (here) painted a less than stellar assessment of FB’s new Timeline.  Today I happened upon this piece, “Don Draper Pitches The Facebook Timeline” and, in particular, the video here.  As a Mad Men fan, this video is brilliant.  If you are not a Mad Men viewer, click here and be sure to read the short set-up under the video…   whatever you think about FB Timeline, I think you will appreciate the spirit that motivated the “Don Draper Pitches The Facebook Timeline” creator:

In all seriousness the most compelling elements of Facebook’s Timeline are the ones that made Kodak’s Carousel popular. Reminiscing is a social activity. It always has been and now Facebook is bringing that activity online.
