Use Facebook Life Event to fill gaps on Timeline with Milestones

Facebook Timeline makes it easy for you to share your life story online. It is an online scrapbook of important milestones in your life. But what use is a scrapbook if there are a lot of missing pieces? Most of us were already born long before Facebook was conceived so some important events in our lives have already happened before Facebook was created, leaving us with lots of gaps on our Facebook Timeline.

If you feel the need to have a comprehensive online scrapbook with no missing pieces, Facebook offers the Life Event tab to enable you add important milestones from your past and present to your Facebook Timeline.

How to Add Milestones to your Timeline

The Life Event tab on your status update form enables you add milestones on your Facebook Timeline.
