“We’ve tried to be mindful about the lessons we’ve learned” Facebook Product Manger Manager Carl Sjogreen told me this morning when we sat down to discuss Timeline, the redesigned version of the user profile that debuted at f8 last month. He says that as the product rolls out over the next few weeks, Facebook will be manually reviewing and approving new Open Graph apps to prevent the spammy experience that emerged when temporarily gave third-party applications a place on the profile years ago. This approach is much more similar to how Apple must approve apps before they enter the App Store than the way Facebook allows canvas apps to launch on its Platform without pre-approval. Sjogreen also revealed more details about Timeline, including that users will be given a curation period to manicure the content displayed in their new profile before it becomes visible to friends. Facebook believes that through social content curation and new lifestyle apps, users will be able to express themselves in more nuanced ways than ever before.
