Almost 4 years ago, I reconnected with a friend from my past who asked if I used Facebook. I'm ashamed to say that at the time, my answer was "No, I've never tried it!" Still, I was anxious to see what it was all about, and I admit I owe finding my childhood friends and distant family to Facebook. I will be forever grateful for the chance to easily communicate with and swap life stories a couple decades later with those who meant so much to me. Well, in the course of 4 years you can imagine I made a lot of posts! I didn't even remember what I wrote about back then, or how I re-introduced myself to past friendships. Until now...with MyLine for iPad where the past has come alive again!

MyLine has such an appropriate name because it is the timeline of your journey through Facebook. You know how impossible it is to go backwards in Facebook trying to get to yesterday's posts, last week's updates much less those of a few years ago! MyLine brings back previous posts immediately for you to enjoy time and again. Looking for a special conversation or photo? Don't waste time trying to find them with regular Facebook apps. Just use MyLine to get your entire history at your fingertips. But it's not all about the past either. This app includes the social feed of the present, wall posts, photos, status updates, events, check-ins, and more, all organized neatly for an awesome viewing experience!

One great feature is that you can even comment on a wall post from a long time ago to discuss an old subject, with the wisdom of a couple years thrown in! Since MyLine has two individual modes to view and enjoy socializing, you will never have a dull moment. Some of the innovative features of this Facebook social networking iPad app are as follows:

Live in the Past:
- Enjoy a month-by-month timeline of your Facebook history including photos, wall posts and status updates.
- Flick through the timeline to see cool stacks of your old photos.
- If you discover a meaningful blast from the past memory, just tap the stack to view the entire month.

Live in the Present:
- See your live Facebook feed, updating in real-time.
- Easily follow all the categories that interest you including status updates, photos, check-ins and more.
- Like and comment on your friends' posts using MyLine's unique interface

When you open MyLine, you will need to log into your Facebook account. Items are then rapidly added to the screen such as Shares, Check-Ins, Photos, Status Updates and Wall. But the most important feature to note is the MyLine box of 3 buttons at the top of your screen which is simultaneously loading all your updates from the past. Once done, your screen will show the years you have been using Facebook. When you tap the orange MyLine box it will take you through the present, but when you tap the left grey box next to it, you will be able to toggle through present and past. The grey button on the right allows you to Logout of Facebook if you wish.

My screen had little orange flags for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011. I tapped any of the stacks of pictures to load the updates from myself and friends, as well as photos from that time period. (A bigger font would be a welcome addition to all this well-compiled information). Basically, whatever features were available on Facebook way back then are what you will now see which is quite a difference from all the bells and whistles of 2011! In any event, there was my debut to the Facebook world with old friends chiming in that they were happy to see me. Yes, that really tickled my funny bone and warmed my heart!

The news of the day was quite intriguing including the election of President Obama, countdowns to vacation, old jobs, books read and you name it! If I sound enthusiastic, it's because I had quite an amazing adventure looking back at the past to see how much I and the world had changed! In fact, I like to call this app the MyLine time machine! Tap the top left corner of your screen to scroll through the years, or alternately tap the grey date box at the bottom of the screen.

Now remember, folks, that Facebook had fewer features in its beginning, so your older history may seem thin. This may happen also if you deleted photos or wall posts, of course. I didn't have any naughty items to erase, so I can pretty much view my Facebook past as it happened from day one, in all its glory! I can also claim that I've had quite a few bittersweet moments when I've viewed conversations from the past with those who were tightly woven into my life. If you use Facebook, MyLine is the perfect complement to it since every detail of your history is now available to you. You must try it!
