Facebook finally started rolling out Facebook Timeline. It is a new type of profile on social network which allows users to add their life events to their profile. Facebook first announced this feature at Facebook f8 conference back in Sept. Since then it was in beta. Facebook enabled it for developers who want to build apps based on this new feature. We have provided a way for everyone to get that new feature instantly by posing them self as developers:).
Response to enable Facebook Timeline was good but most of the users who enabled the Timeline literally hated it from the core and immediately started looking ways to get rid of it. We have written another tip to get back the old profile. This method worked well until final release of Timeline. There are numerous complaints by users about this feature like cluttered, harder to control privacy..etc. Few users removed because not all of their friends can see it, as initial preview appears to people who have a Facebook Developer account.
Starting Dec 7th, Facebook started rolling out Timeline to general public in multiple phases. First phase it was pushed to New Zealand users and soon it will be enabled in other countries. We have learned from Dreamsrain users that it was pushed to all developers who enabled Timeline earlier using Facebook developer account. Once it is pushed to a account there is no way to get old profile even using the method mentioned above.
UPDATE : Facebook Timeline is now available for everyone worldwide. Click here to read detailed information about the Timeline.
Why Timeline is not visible to my friends
One question which is bothering many of the users who got final version of Timeline is, why is it not visible to my friends. As per Facebook, Timeline will be visible them self for one week to let them manage their Timeline and add content to it. Once they finished setting up Timeline they can manually publish it so that others can see it or it will be automatically published after one week from the day it is enabled to you.
Is it possible to remove Timeline and get back old profile
Most of Dreamsrain users are trying to get rid of Timeline by following the steps we have written. But those steps only works if it was enabled using developer account hack. Now Facebook is pushing to all users even though they do not have developer account.
As of now there is no way to get your old profile back once it is pushed to you. Unless Facebook decides to give option for users to choose which type of profile they want. We suggest all Dreamsrain users not to follow any third party tools/apps to get old profile page. Those tools/apps wont provide you a solution and they steal your Facebook data.
Soon we will provide you detailed guide to make sure you get most out of Facebook Timeline. Let us know your opinion on this new feature in the comments below.
