Get Rid Of The Timeline And Bring Back The Old Facebook (For You)

We think Facebook’s new Timeline layout is pretty sweet, if only for its awesome customisability. If you’re adamant about wanting the old Facebook back, though, a simple Chrome extension can abolish the Timeline for good. Here’s how.


We’ve talked about one way to ditch Timeline’s annoyances before, but that method didn’t really bring back the old Facebook — it just made Timeline easier to use. This extension will actually bring back the old Facebook, using what we can only imagine is some form of ancient wizardry — and all you need to do is install the extension. Hit the link below to check it out, and your Timeline woes will be gone — though you can always bring it back by going to the extension’s options.

Note that people visiting your profile will still see your Timeline. There’s no way to get rid of it completely, only block it from showing up on your machine. Still, this extension works shockingly well, so all Timeline haters should check it out pronto if you want to see the old, familiar layout in your day-to-day browsing.

  • Every time Facebook tries to simplify things, they simply make things more difficult!! Timeline sucks, pure and simple. But just like the government, Facebook forces things upon us because THEY say it’s a good thing!

    • You may not be aware of this, but Facebook is a free service. Facebook Inc. can do whatever they want to the site, and you can’t do anything about it. Just like every other change on the internet, there is originally resistance, and then people get over it.

    • I hate it when free services, that I’m in no way obliged to use, change on me.

      Don’t they know I’m entitled to a continuous, unbroken user experience?
