Posting to a Timeline
The Timeline feed allows you to post comments or updates on a user's timeline, much like the way you would post in a discussion group. You will always be able to post to your own feed, and you will be able to post to a user's feed you have connected to. To post to a user's feed that you aren't connected to their timeline will need to be defined as Public in their Profile settings.
