Overview of How to Remove / Disable Facebook Timeline
If you have got Facebook Timeline and want to change back to viewing the old style profile pages, or if you haven’t got Timeline yet, but just want to view your friend’s Timeline pages in the old style profile format, this guide is for you.
Currently, if you visit a personal Facebook Timeline page, with a browser that identifies itself as «Internet Explorer 7», you will be shown the old style profile page for that person, instead of their Timeline page. This is because Facebook haven’t yet created a version of Timeline that works with IE7.
When you visit a website, your web browser sends it an identification code, known as the «User Agent», which lets the site know what web browser you are using. This method for disabling timeline works by changing your current browser’s «User Agent» to IE7 and tricking Facebook into showing you the old style profile pages.
