It is actually a great idea that I want to see more: build timelines of famous dead people in Facebook. I can imagine the same for everyone, from politicians like FDR or Winston Churchill to scientists like Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton to actors like Paul Newman and Humphrey Bogart. It would be great way to try to teach some history. You know. For kids!
In fact, Facebook should make these officially and call them Facebook's Historical Bios or something like that.
This one is not going to last long, I'm sure, so go through it while it lasts. [Facebook]
