The look of Facebook changes all the time, with the latest updated feature being the Timeline. Though causing an uproar among some in the Facebook community, this change is inspiration for the Katy Perry Wide Awake lyric video.
Starting from May 2010, the video follows Perry’s wild two-year ride, highlighting major milestones like the release of album Teenage Dream to getting food poisoning before a concert. All such updates appear between posts that appear in line with lyrics of her song Wide Awake, which plays alongside the timeline-video mashup.
It seems the Facebook feature, though initially up against many a disgruntled user, has redeemed itself with the help of Katy Perry. This lyric video is one of the many successful products that have used Timeline to its advantage.
