Facebook Timeline is the social network's latest method of adding more trinkets to your profile page. It's a virtual scrapbook of your whole Facebook history that fits in with the site's new timeline format. You can get the most out of the new format by displaying not just your Facebook activities, but by using apps to show what else you're doing around the web. Facebook touts it as a way to bring your timeline to life and express who you are, and we'd say that's pretty accurate. Timeline apps are a great way to integrate your various hobbies into your Facebook profile.
