Invention of the Day: Facebook Social Networking Timeline.

On January 17, 2012, Aaron Sitting and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Inc. got another patent issued from the original provisional application filed on December 23, 2005. US Patent 8,099,433 is titled Managing Information About Relationships in a Social Network via a Social Timeline.

It's also interesting to see that Facebook learned from Apple's patent strategy and filed for a number of design patents covering its user interface features.
