Disable Facebook Timeline Application - Recover Old Facebook Profile

Facebook timeline is a great way of displaying your old photos, memorable posts and apps with your friends and family. This feature changes your entire Facebook Profile layout into a more attractive look. I previously wrote a tutorial on how to Enable Facebook Timeline Feature and today I am sharing the tutorial on how to completely remove the timeline app from your profile and revert to older Facebook profile layout. Since this time-based story telling did receive mixed feedback therefore it would be really helpful for most of you to learn how to undo/delete this application.

How To Disable Facebook Timeline Layout?

  • Log in to your Facebook account
  • Then visit this page Developers
  • Towards your left you will see apps. Choose the app you created for timeline. In my case I named it Timeline Feature.
timeline settings
  • Click the Edit Settings link,
edit timeline settings
  • Then on the settings page towards bottom-left you will see many options under related links, Choose Delete App. Which will delete the timeline app.
delete timeline
  • Confirm to delete the app and Bingo you have successfully shifted back to the older Profile view.
  • Visit your profile to see it in its exact previous look and layout. 
My Opinion : Personally I don't like this timeline view of facebook. I always prefer the old look .... :))
Do let me know if you needed any help pals. Hope you find this helpful. :>

Techno marine strap watches such as the Technomarine Cruise Diamond, are striking timepieces of the kind the more flamboyant gentlemandiscount tissot watches might choose. It is available in two colours of either yellow or black. The yellow version has the colour most prominent in the strap, which tissot PR 516 is rubber with a traditional buckle. The dial is also yellow, but of a more pale shade. The black round case with a mineral crystal glass face sets a contrast that makestissot motogp limited edition it really stand out. This watch is water resistant down to 200 metres, it has a quartz analogue movement and a diamond set bezel.
