How To Remove Facebook Timeline

Facebook timeline

 

Facebook Timeline is one of the biggest changes to Facebook profiles since its inception. Many users like it, many users hate it. So, if you are among the haters of Timeline profiles – here’s the solution for you.

Exoot Systems has released an Google Chrome plugin that removes timeline for profiles. It changes your profile back to the old layout.

Facebook timeline

How does it works?

Facebook is sending HTML code to your computer & your computer translates the code in your browser. This Plugin intercepts the code & reassembles it in old design. Therefore, you see your old profile again and you would also see old profiles of your friends.

But the changes will take place only on your computer. If you want your friends to see your old Facebook profile, they too need to install Facebook Timeline Remover.

And It will affect only personal profiles, not fan pages! [ Update: It is working on fan pages too. ]

How To Download “Facebook Timeline Remover Plugin”

– Go to Exoot Systems website here.
– Follow the Instructions.
– And your Timeline is gone.

The plugin is only available for Google Chrome at the moment and you can remove the plugin from your browser anytime you want. To enable or disable Facebook Timeline Remover Plugin – click on the coner top right icon, so you can always switch back & forth.

Google+ rolls out new design similar to Facebook Timeline

google plus timeline

Google today introduced a significant redesign for its social networking site Google+. The changes are very similar to Facebook Timeline.
The company announced in a blog post that they are introducing a more functional & flexible version of Google+ with a much easier and nicer design.

Some of the new features include bigger profile photos and easy navigation around the news stream and apps.

“By focusing on you, the people you care about, & the stuff you’re into, we are going to continue upgrading all the features you already know & love—from Search & Maps to Gmail & YouTube. With today’s foundational changes we can move even faster—toward a simpler and more beautiful Google.”Google senior vice president Vic Gundotra posted on Google’s Official Blog.

So, what do you think of this new design of Google+?
I liked it very much but will they ever be able to compete with Facebook?
Though Google announced that they have more than 170 million users on Google Plus but I’m pretty sure number of active users on Google+ are pretty low.

How To Use Facebook Timeline For Brand Pages [ Complete Guide ]

facebook timeline pages today show

Facebook finally launched the Timeline Pages for Brands on the Morning News Show, “Today” and the first timeline launched was of “Today Show”.
The Timeline for Pages is optional at the moment and will be upgraded to all the pages automatically on March 30, 2012.
Till then, you can use the Timeline Preview Manager to preview your pages and publish it when you are ready.

Here’s a complete guide on How to make the best out of Facebook Timeline for Brand Pages:

Cover Photo

The cover photo is the first thing now that people will see when they visit your Page and it can have a lot of impact. The size of cover photo can be up to 850 pixels by 315 pixels.
Facebook Timeline for pages has removed the ability to create a default landing welcome tab
So, the new welcome tab is Cover Photo.
So, carefully choose a unique visually amazing photo which represents your business and try to change it often.
Facebook’s Product Director of Ads Gokul Rajaram says,” Covers should not include features such as “Like this Page”, purchase or discount info such as “40% off” or “Download this at our website”, or contact info” as these factors are big turnoff.”

Profile Picture

Profile Picture represents your Page on other parts of Facebook, like in news feed.
Use your logo or another image that represents your Page.
You should choose an image that is square & at least 180 pixels wide.
The best part of profile picture is that you can make it look amazing by combining it creatively with Cover photo.
On the side of profile picture, it shows two stats: your total Likes & the number of “people talking about this”.
Below, About section shows a description for brands & contact information for local businesses.

Photos, Likes and Apps

facebook timeline pages

Photos, likes and Apps will be shown at the top of your Page below the cover photo.
In the default setting, photos will be shown in the first spot, but you can change the order of everything else so people can see what matters most.
A maximum of 12 apps such as contests, games, promotions,etc. can be shown.
Apart from the four apps, rest of the apps now are hidden under a drop down menu and thus, likely to receive less engagement.

Highlight What’s Important

To Highlight a post, hover over a story and click on the star icon to make it wider and highligh it, or on the pencil icon to pin it to the top of your Page(yes , you can pin most important stories to the top of your page for up to 7 days), re-position photos, change date, hide or delete it entirely.

Facebook finally starts rolling out the new Timeline profile

facebook timeline

It’s been more than 10 weeks since Facebook promised to launch the new profile page, “Timeline”. But nothing has been initiated.
Today finally Facebook started rolling out the new user interface, ‘Timeline’ to users in New Zealand in the morning. Facebook’s Product Manager Samuel W. Lessin made the announcement today on the Facebook blog on why they have started the process with New Zealand, “As a global company, we need to gain perspective & insights from outside the US. One benefit of starting rollout in New Zealand is that it’s English speaking, so we can read the feedback and make improvements quickly.”

By afternoon, some users from India also experienced the new Timeline Interface.

Timeline was supposed to launch within weeks after f8 but Facebook did not rush anything. Initially facebook only launched the developers version.

Facebook calls Timeline “the evolution of your profile” as it highlights all the important updates of your life.

Timeline is more about visual: not only does it have a giant cover photo at the top, but also lets you star your favorite photos to double their size.

In Timeline, you can check everything you shared since you joined Facebook very easily.

Learn more about Timeline here.

We will keep you updated about the reaction of the users about Timeline.
In the meantime, if you have access to ‘Timeline’, what do you think about this new interface?
Is it irritating or awesome?

But now if the reports are to be believed, Facebook is planning to roll out the new profile ‘Timeline’ to all the Facebook users on Monday ( November 7, 2011). The move can prove to be risky for Facebook as ‘Timeline’ is a very complex profile according to many of its users.
