Reverting Facebook old profile layout

The site made their major page design enhancement and was incrementally deployed by letting the user choose to upgrade to new version. At first look its seems cool having lots of pics on the wall. But the longer you use the site its kinda troublesome always looking to the same thumbnails and a lots of it on your wall. Some users, including me wants to revert back the old profile wall layout but Facebook announce that if you upgrade to new profile there is now way to return to the old one. Yes there is no option or access on the Facebook settings but then theres a cool trick how to return the old Facebook profile by De-activating your account for about 10-15 minutes and activate it again.

How to deactivate your Facebook account 

1. Log in to your Facebook account, and click on "Account " in the top right corner.
2. Then click to the "Account Setting".
3. Scroll to the very bottom of the page, and click on the deactivation link.
4. Confirm your deactivation. Make sure to give a reason since it's required like "This is temporary. I'll be back."
5.Then hit "Confirm".

Note: There is no harm on De-activating you account since you can always Re-activate it by logging-in to your account. It automatically re-activate the moment you log-in


  1. Are you sure this will work?

  2. yes it will work. I already tried it, I do not like the new layout. I change it to old.

  3. well it did not work for me damn it :(
