Facebook begins soft launch of Timeline

December 6, 2011 7:09:10 PM PST
Facebook has begun rolling out its much anticipated Timeline.

The social media network announced Timeline in September and made it available to developers for app building.

Since then, over a million people have signed up for the developer beta to access Timeline.

On Tuesday, Facebook flipped the switch and made it available to people in New Zealand.

On its blog, the company says it will be measuring speed and other types of performance.

Facebook will roll it out more broadly "in the near future."
