Remember the Facebook Timeline feature announced in September that would allow you to see a timeline of your Facebook status updates all the way back to when you were born? Well the feature has finally started rolling out.

“We announced Timeline in September and made it available to developers building apps on our platform. Since then, over a million people have signed up for the developer beta to access Timeline,” Facebook tells us suggesting that either it has a lot of developers, or that many people used a sidestep to get the new features early.

“Starting today, we are making Timeline more widely available as we measure speed and other types of performance. We'll begin by making it available to people in New Zealand and then roll it out more broadly in the near future.”

That’s good news if you live in New Zealand, not so great if you live in the US or UK. As for when the new feature will be coming to the Northern Hemisphere, Facebook hasn’t detailed that yet.

If you can’t wait that long you should follow our workaround guide.

UPDATE: Facebook has now confirmed this feature is available for everyone:

"We recently announced our plans to introduce Facebook Timeline, an entirely new kind of profile. 

Timeline gives you an easy way to rediscover the things you shared, and collect your most important moments. It also lets you share new experiences, like the music you listen to or the miles you run.

Starting today, timeline is now available everywhere."
