You can post the following on Timeline:
• Text: Up to 10,000 characters per post.
• Photos and videos: Up to 20 per post.
• Regular stickers: Up to 20 per post.
• Sound, animated, and pop-up stickers: Up to 1 per post.
Note: These can't be posted with regular stickers.
• URLs and locations: Up to 1 each per post.
Timeline posts will also appear on your profile, and will be visible to your friends based on your Timeline privacy settings. If you don't want a post to be seen, you can limit the audience from the privacy settings before sharing it on your Timeline.
Depending on which version of LINE you're using, you can make posts to Timeline with one of the methods below.
Versions of LINE earlier than 8.12.0
• Tap the Friends tab > your profile > Home > Write at the top left.
• Tap the Timeline tab > Write or Camera at the top of the screen.
LINE version 8.12.0 or later
• Tap the Friends tab > your profile > Posts or Photos/Videos > the pencil icon at the bottom right.
• Tap the Timeline tab > the pencil icon at the bottom right > Write or Camera.
Note: You can update to the latest version of LINE here.
When someone Likes or comments on your post, a number will appear on the bell icon at the top of your Timeline. If you turn on Timeline notifications, you will also receive alerts on your smartphone’s notification screen.
To like or comment on a post:
1. Tap Timeline.
2. Under a post, tap and hold Like (the smiley face), or tap Comment (the speech bubble).
Tapping Like on a post is a quick and easy way to show that you enjoyed it. You can also tap and hold the Like button to choose from six LINE character faces with different reactions to show how you're feeling at the moment.
When you like a post that is set to public, it will be shared with friends on Timeline. If you don't want your Likes to be shared, uncheck "Share on Timeline" after tapping and holding the Like button.
Commenting on posts
Leave comments on posts to show how you feel about them using text, stickers, or photos. You can delete a comment you posted by swiping left on it and then tapping Delete.
To edit the content of a Timeline/profile post:
1. At the top right of the post you want to edit, tap "..." > Edit post.
2. After editing or adding information, tap Post at the top right.
If you're using a version of LINE earlier than 6.6, you won't be able to edit information other than written text or add information like photos or stickers once you've completed your post.
If you add the # symbol in front of text (e.g. #LINE) when you make a post, it will create a hashtag. Tapping a hashtag lets you view all posts that include the same hashtag.
Note: Posts with hashtags that you've made Public can be searched for and viewed by users other than your friends.
Try using hashtags when you want to share your posts with a larger audience.
Entering the @ symbol in front of a friend's name (e.g. @Brown) lets you tag them in a post.
When you tag friends, be sure that they're included in the privacy setting you select for the post.
Note: If the post is not shared with your friends, they will be unable to view it.
When the post is completed, the friends you tagged will be notified.
You can choose your desired time to have a post automatically delete itself.
To set an auto-delete time, please refer to the following steps:
1. Enter the details for your post.
2. Tap "..." > Timer.
3. Choose the time you want the post to be deleted, then tap Post.
Please be aware that any Likes or comments on this post will also be deleted at the same time.
The relay feature gives you a separate place to post together with friends on Timeline. Just select Relay on Timeline, and you can share fun memories, secret places only you know, new clothes you bought, and other topics with your friends.
You can set which friends can participate in a relay.
If you want to share with all of your friends, just choose Friends under Who can join. You can also share a relay with close friends only by choosing a group or custom list of friends.
Birthday boards let you celebrate your friends' birthdays by sending them birthday cards and wish effects. When you create a birthday board in advance, it will appear for your friend to see at midnight on their birthday.
To send birthday cards:
1. At the bottom of the birthday board, tap Write birthday card.

• Tap the balloon icon at the bottom right of the birthday board.

There is no limit to how long you can celebrate on a birthday board, and the content posted on one can be viewed at any time.

What are slideshows/GIFs?
These features let you easily turn your favorite photos into videos. A variety of effects are available to help you make the kind of video you want.
