Back to the old Facebook – YES PLEASE

UPDATE: September 21st, 2011
If you want to go back to the Facebook pre September 21, 2011, change the language of the site to anything BUT English US. You can put it in British English (English UK).
Hope that helps.

The day after Facebook rolled out its redesign, I made a great discovery.


then by clicking that link on the upper right hand corner

after clicking that link on the upper right corner

+1 to Facebook for providing options.

  1. I just started using facebook and was getting used to it. I have no idea how to get around in this new one and the appearance is totally crappy. Will the retard who invented this change please go get a job flipping burgers and let someone with a bit of sense get this thing working so that we normal people can enjoy it again.

  2. Actually, you can still use the old facebook in some instances. For example, since the release of ‘Safari’ for windows, you can go to old facebook if you utilize the developer tools. Safari is a web browser made by apple and is totally free of charge.

    If you feel the need to use the old facebook still, download Safari ” “. Once you boot up the web browser, go to the drop down menu that says Developer, then user agent, then pick Internet Explorer 5.5. After you do this, browse to and it should be the old style with a banner that says “The new facebook is unavailable.”

    Hope this helps guys! JMR

    OMG…I hate that new layout – it sucks!!!! :o So complicated, can’t find any of the applications, all the pages look the’s lost all of the individuality. And has anyone else noticed how slow the new layout is to work? I’m on a VERY fast ADSL connection..the old FB works perfectly, fast, easy to navigate…but the new one…pffffffff…sooooooo slow!!!! Totally hate it!!! :( Can’t understand why they need to change something that works perfectly in the first place…to a ‘new’ design which is totally useless.
