A couple of weeks ago Facebook has rolled out Timeline for worldwide. But for those who are not techies enough, they still use old profile. If you are among one of them you can activate it here. Well, It is not called facebook if not come up with controversial. Some people already love the new Facebook Timeline but some others hate it. For haters, they have given very negative comments about it and desperately want to get their old layout back. But for me, It looks good. I loved it. Previously, for those who activated Facebook timeline using developer method, we can removed it with deleting the app. But it is not working anymore as facebook has officially rolled timeline to all accounts. So if you don’t want to use timeline you can follow these steps below to deactivate timeline through your browser.
