Removing Facebook Timeline

If you're not on Facebook, this post will be meaningless. If you are on Facebook, it is likely that your page has been converted to a thing called TIMELINE.

Timeline has caused some distress among a few users. They installed Timeline on my page a few days ago. It really doesn't bother me too much one way or another, but what does bother me just a little bit is that Facebook has forced Timeline on its users. There is no choice to revert back to the old, single line home page.

Sweet Wifey sent me a link to a program called F.B. Purity, which supposedly will remove Timeline from your home page. I have not at this point tried it, so I make no promises and offer no warranty. The only reason for this post is because I unsuccessfully tried to send the link to a Facebook friend. Well they had blocked every attempt to post this link, either as a comment or as a private message. Therefore I have invited Facebookers to this post to gather the link.

For some reason, Facebook really wants you to be stuck with Timeline and have no say in the matter. I have to wonder about their motivations. At any rate they pissed me off enough to offer F.B. Purity. Go HERE to grab the program and feedback of your experiences with it would be appreciated.

  1. There is also a Google Application that will revert FB back to it's previous uselessness.
