Social Enterprise

A nerd's guide to your Facebook Timeline

Geeky events you might put in your Facebook Timeline include when you first played Legend of Zelda or when you went to your first Comic-Con.

This guest post by Jennifer L. Jacobson originally published on Retrevo.com.

If it were up to Mark Zuckerberg, your Facebook Timeline will literally say, you were born... then you joined Facebook. Now let me be clear... nerds don't wane nostalgic over trivial things like baby's first steps, or first words; we care about when you first saw Star Wars or beat Super Mario Bros. So why not nerd-out your Facebook Timeline? Here are some events we're sure you'll want to add to make your social life (at least look) complete.

Tell your Facebook Timeline all about when you:

  1. Saw your first Star Trek episode
  2. First went to Comic-Con
  3. Watched Star Wars for the first time
  4. Played your first standup arcade game
  5. Got your first (real) camera
  6. Made your first recorded answering machine (or voice mail) message
  7. Rented your first VHS or BETAMAX movie
  8. First saw the "Macintosh"
  9. Got your first computer
  10. First beat Super Mario Bros.
  11. First played Legend of Zelda
  12. Recorded your first television show
  13. First went "online"
  14. Got your first PDA
  15. Used your first search engine
  16. Got your first AOL Disc in the mail
  17. Joined Friendster
  18. Joined MySpace (and when you stopped using it)
  19. First saw the "Dancing Baby"
  20. Realized there is "no spoon"
  21. First had the uncontrollable desire to kill a digitally generated, mocap character AKA: Jar Jar Binks
  22. Got your first cell phone
  23. Bought your first song on iTunes
  24. Took your iPod out in public for the first time
  25. Uploaded your first YouTube video
  26. Made your first blog
  27. Saw your first meme
  28. First played Guitar Hero
  29. Bought your first "App"
  30. Got your first Twitter follower
  31. First played Angry Birds
  32. Got your first tablet
  33. Killed your first Dragon in Skyrim
