16 replies
Hi warriors

One question about Facebook
My fan page suddenly changed to Timeline Style (the new Facebook style)
I dont like this style at all and i want to comeback to the old one

Is this possible?
how can i do it?
It would be something i can be affected by?

Thanks in advance

    I'm afraid you cannot revert back to the old style.

    I have had timeline for a few months now. It is great when you get used to it.

    Yeah, I know you can not go back to the old style.

    And I believe that FB wants us all to go to the new style this year. (Only I've heard it - buzz buzz so I'm not sure that's true).

    And yes, you will get used to it eventually, you'll have to ;-)

    Good luck with it!

    Apparently all pages will switch to timeline format on 30 Mar and the Fan Pages apps will be hidden somewhere right below the Timeline Cover (main image). Also there will be no links and promotion on the Timeline cover image!

    You can't go back to the old style, but there are templates designed to make the timeline look more like the old style. Most of them charge, so its worth seeing how good they actually are before buying. A friend has one that is very realistic.

    I've had timeline for a while though, and while it takes a bit of adjusting, it is quite good once you are used to it.

    This happened to me. It's still kinda like a trial run. What happened to me was a message was showing on top and there was a link saying I could change back to my old fan page style. On March 30 though, all fan pages will be using the timeline.

    Every business will be switching to the new Timeline Layout on March 30th so it's best to prepare yourself now as there is no getting out of it!

      Anyone know why it's being changed. Most of the posts I've read in a variety of places seem to be favouring the older style. I must admit when I go onto a Timeline page I quickly move back off it. I don't like the style at all.

        I wasn't a fan at first but after spending the whole day exploring what other brands are doing and updating some my own page I like it and think it's a positive change overall. You can see what I've done with my new page here:
        The Modern Entrepreneur | Facebook

        It would be cool to see what other people are doing with it too!

    There is no way to go back to the old style, once you have switched to the timeline model. If you create a new Facebook account, you will be forced to use the timeline. So, there is nothing much that can be done.

    No, you can't. Facebook will force it to all other existing pages as well.

    I agree with the others.
    There is no way of changing back to the old Facebook Pages.

    We just need to get accustomed to this new Timeline layout.
    We can't do anything else.

    I think the new Timeline is decent actually. Not too bad, once you get used to it.

    You can't go back to the old style. There are some addons for firefox (I can't remember the name) which can change the look but just at your local pc. I'd suggest you to familiarize yourself with the new look.
