How To Remove Timeline On Facebook?


Facebook has recently offered an option to convert your old profile page to their Timeline format. You have the option to do this, but if you have already set-up your Timeline, there’s no direct way to remove it. This may sound harsh since not all people want to use Timeline and they want to revert back to their old Facebook profile page. Facebook has not provided any option to remove Timeline, which has made some unsatisfied users angry about the situation.

But there are various ways for you to remove your Timeline in Facebook. However, this may involve using several tricks to get your old Facebook profile back as it was before. In addition, these tricks are only effective in removing Timeline for yourself, but your friends or those who view your profile will still see your Timeline in your profile.
