All the Apple users, can get a 3D experience through Facebook timeline, pretty soon. According to reports, Facebook is likely to roll out “3D Touch”, a new feature to its timeline.

This feature will help the users to hard-press on items to preview content and then optionally act on it. This is an alternative for the usual tapping and swiping feature that Apple executes now.

The feature will also work with web links, profiles, Facebook Pages, Facebook Groups, Facebook Events, photos, profile pictures and cover photos.

This feature will allow the users to click on the links and profiles. The users will not have to navigate away from their current spot.

“We are excited to start rolling out support for 3D Touch in our iOS app so people can quickly and easily peek into a preview of anything they are interested in on Facebook, and pop into that content to see more,” a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying in the report.

The “3D Touch” will be available on the timeline to a ‘small group’ of people and later will be expanded to more users.

This previewing feature was earlier called “peek and pop” and introduced on Apple’s new smartphones last year. The feature is such that the user can “peek” at emails from your inbox with a light press then press a little harder to “pop” into them soon!
