Add events to your Timeline
Here's the fun and daunting part of the new Facebook: all of your activity (including posts, check-ins, photos, info changes, and more) is now viewable to you and your friends in chronological order. Using the Timeline navigation to the right of your Cover photo, you can click to view old posts going all the way back to the very first day you joined Facebook.
Below your first post, you'll see an empty section for the day you were born. Facebook wants users to fill in events that happened throughout their lives, even before joining Facebook.
To add an event, hover over the point in the Timeline when it happened and click the gray line. There's an option to add a status update, photo, location you visited, or type of "life event." Facebook gives you many options, like "Broke a bone," "New vehicle," "Overcame an illness," "Graduated," and more. If your life event doesn't fit into one of Facebook's option, click "other life event."
