I've just change my facebook profile to timeline and found that it really really sucked and more bad news is that you are unable to revert to your old look once you use timeline (they say). Could anyone give me some tips or anything at all to revert to my old facebook profile. i really hate this crap.

    I don't think you can revert back to the old Facebook. And yes, a lot of people are also complaining on this new Timeline feature.

    I heard Timeline will actually be a requirement, no turning back.. and it's not so bad. Use your cover photo as an ad banner!

    It's pretty cool for me. I don't know why people make this as a huge issue when there's only the banner that was added and all the features present in the old system is still present or just improved on timeline

    me too, I like facebook timeline, it's cool, I already changed it before it was public for the people, but what I don't like is sometimes there's a bug on facebook.

    I haven't changed to the timeline yet but can anyone answer this for me?

    When I view anyone with the timeline, as I scroll down to read their stuff, every 20-30 seconds their page refreshes and goes back to the top of the page. It's really annoying. I have yet to be able to read even half of what's on someone's page without the page jumping back to the top.

      I'm really glad to see that I'm not the only one this happens to - it drives me mad too.

      If I land on a FB page that has timeline I close it because I know I'm not going to be able to read much of it.

      I haven't changed to timeline for that reason.

    Not a big fan here either. Sure, the features are still there, but I find it a bit more confusing, and also don't like the scrolling thing. But, I am now stuck, and with every change must come some level of acceptance. I'm working on getting used to it. I'm sure in a month or so I'll enjoy it more as I have with most "new" things (hopefully).

    Yes, Thats Why I did not Convert my Profile at Timeline! Though Time Line is Very Innovative and Effective Feature but it is quite difficult to understand!

    I could not agree more, but like all things people will soon get used to it and when the next facebook innovation comes out we will all be frustrated then.

      Create a seperate FB page for your business, timeline doesn't affect those pages.

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

    Yes, I hate it too. It is not very useful and organized. I don't look at profiles that have this.

    dude, i think there are two ways to activate timeline. either you activate it now or it automatically activates after a week. so you just have to wait.

    i agree with timeline sucking big time. it overly confuses me to the point that i figuratively get dizzy.

  • I like it. Looks more professional. It's funny how with every update people seem to complain until they get used to it. Then on the next update it repeats itself lool

    I like it.

    But if you're one that hates it, you can use this plugin to disable it:

    TimeLineRemove.Com disable the new facebook timeline!

    It's not all that bad really.

    I'd take advantage of the huge Display Area on the Top of the Timeline.
    Very good for Branding/Advertising.
