Timeline Movie Maker turns your Facebook Timeline Profile Into a Movie [ Facebook App ]

timeline movie maker

With the launch of Timeline, it offers many opportunities to developers to build apps to enhance the use of this over hyped profile of Facebook.
The all new “Timeline Movie Maker” takes your pictures, status updates & other activity to create a 60-second video chronicling your activity on the site. The finished product is worth a watch.

I gave it a try. First, it took most of the pictures from different applications in which my friends tagged me and I wasn’t even there in the pictures. But the best part of the app is that you can actually swap bad or useless pictures with the good ones to make it a perfect 60-second video.
You can also change the background music with 5 options available to you.
