Remember those karaoke videos from three years ago that somehow wound up on Facebook? They were embarrassing for the few hours they spent at the top of your Facebook profile, and then they were buried under a cascade of new updates.
But on Thursday, Facebook started rolling out a revamped profile feature called Timeline that makes a user's entire history of photos, links and other things shared on Facebook accessible with a single click. This may be the first moment that many of Facebook's 800 million members realize just how many digital bread crumbs they have been leaving on the site -- and on the Web in general.
