Facebook gave an example of users who designate which movie they're watching in the status update will then have the movie posted to the movie section of their timeline, and the movie's Facebook page will appear in the status update.

To clarify any privacy concerns Facebook said, "These updates, and the stories added to your timeline, respect the privacy settings you choose for your post."
