How to get the Old Facebook Back?

Please Like our FB page

Update: Dec 15, 2011
Once you have switched to New Timeline, there is no way you can go back to OLD Facebook.

Yes, there is a way to go back to old Facebook :)

Follow these Steps to get OLD FB Back:

    Log into your Facebook Account.
    Click on “Account” (Top Right), Click on “Account Settings”, and under “Deactivate Account” click “deactivate”.
    After your account has been deactivated.
    Log back in after 10 minutes, and you should have the old Facebook.
    So basically, deactivating it for at least 10 minutes can get you your Old facebook back

If it worked for you, change your FB status to help others

If you have already upgraded your Facebook Profile to New profile, you may be out of luck. According to Facebook FAQs, you cannot return to the previous version. You have to take a tour of the new version, and stick with it. Please join our FB group to get your voice heard.

Updated: 2009

None of the ways work now, and there is no way to get the old Facebook back. Since the “new” has been removed from Facebook’s homepage and now new Facebook is the only Facebook.

Kamran Posted on September 14, 2008 at 2:27 pm

I tried this again and its still working. I am using Firefox.

Sheraz Posted on September 14, 2008 at 3:12 pm

Kamran -

Its only working for the accounts that have not yet been moved! It isn’t working for me!

Ray Posted on September 14, 2008 at 3:46 pm

ive posted your link to facebook sites, and some are saying it works, but some are saying it just takes them to the new facebook!
when i click your link, the address automatically changes from ‘opt out’ to ‘opt in’ .. i think the facebook police are onto it!

Teri Posted on September 14, 2008 at 3:48 pm

I can get in the way you suggested, but only using internet explorer, not firefox.

SHAHD Posted on September 14, 2008 at 5:00 pm

Sandeep Posted on September 14, 2008 at 5:44 pm

SWEET!!!, thanks alot!!!

Chani Posted on September 14, 2008 at 5:46 pm

A question: what does the visitor see when he or she visits my site – the old or new version? I am taken to old using one of the methods (great!), but using a different browser brings me to the new. As the user, am I the only one who can “see” the old version that has been restored? Thanks again.

Angie Posted on September 14, 2008 at 5:49 pm

yay, first link worked!
:) thank you

Kamran Posted on September 14, 2008 at 5:54 pm

Chani :
It depends on the user, if he/she is using the new facebook version, they will see your profile in new one, if he/she is using the old one, they will see your profile in old version.

I am not sure why you were redirected to new one from different browser, try clearing your browser cookies.

I am glad it worked for most of you guys. :D

Rachel Posted on September 14, 2008 at 7:12 pm

this didn’t work. i tried all of them

THANK YOU SO MUCHH

bridgy c Posted on September 14, 2008 at 10:44 pm

can you help please? i want old facebook, can you please help me?

Roohi Posted on September 14, 2008 at 11:05 pm

Thanks so much! It worked for me! :)

And to those who can’t figure it out.

The easiest way to go about doing this is to go to the link where it recommends adding the facebook developers application, go ahead and actually add the application, it DOES help in getting the old facebook back.

After adding the application, go back to this website, and click on the first link that tells you is plausible to work.

You have to do it in that order, hope it works out for you!

vanessa Posted on September 15, 2008 at 12:07 am

omfggg. that WORKED

thanks yousss so much YOUR A LIFE SAVER !

Reikispirit Posted on September 15, 2008 at 1:12 am

Harry Posted on September 15, 2008 at 3:24 am

Thanks frnd u r great

g Posted on September 15, 2008 at 4:34 am

thank you very much :)

if its not working for you, make sure you add the Facebook Developers application AND THEN click the first link.

Alex Posted on September 15, 2008 at 5:53 am

Erm, you realise the “You are about to go to another site” is a security measure so that you don’t enter your password on a new site that someone’s set up to look like Facebook to steal your password? Myspace does the same.

I hardly think Facebook would have let you post links and stories if it didn’t want you to visit them. It’s not all a conspiracy, you know.

erwaa Posted on September 15, 2008 at 8:03 am

omg thank you soo much!

Lucas Posted on September 15, 2008 at 10:09 am

It does work if you use an old firefox. If i use Firefox 1.5 and I switch back to the old one it is still the old one but if I use Firefox 2.x or Flock then it always switch back to the new one!

Victor Posted on September 15, 2008 at 11:11 am

Seriously, seriously NICE ONE

karin Posted on September 15, 2008 at 12:00 pm

Kamran, how do you know when the old facebook disapears for good?

i am so confused and it doesnt work

Emily Posted on September 15, 2008 at 2:02 pm

You’re my hero! Thank you so much!!!

Marie Posted on September 15, 2008 at 3:03 pm

It worked for me even if I don’t have Firefox; wonderfull !!!
People at Facebook should listen to their members; if it was’nt for us, they would not be where they are now…so we should have the choice to choose wich Facebook layouts we want.

Kamran Posted on September 15, 2008 at 3:46 pm

Karin:
Probably Wednesday.

Mike Posted on September 15, 2008 at 3:58 pm

Jolaade Posted on September 15, 2008 at 4:42 pm

Thank you so much!! I really detest the new facebook and when I accidentally clicked “try it” it didn’t give me the choice this time of changing back!! You got me back home now and I can enjoy it until it is changed permanently. Wish they would just leave it alone

Shayna Posted on September 15, 2008 at 11:27 pm

Chinta Posted on September 16, 2008 at 12:18 am

“All the time, it was… We finally really did it.

None of these ways are working for me now. The third way worked for a little while, but then Facebook switched me back to the new one again. :-(

EtotheD Posted on September 16, 2008 at 2:59 pm

Denis Posted on September 16, 2008 at 11:09 pm

https://www.facebook.com/home.php

From there,

1. Right click on the link you want to go to

2. Copy Shortcut

3. Paste it in your browser

4. Change “http” to “https”

Aga Posted on September 17, 2008 at 4:36 am

Nothing works anymore. They torpedoed everything…

You guys are so anti-change. The new designs on based on usability and success of other formats through other sits such as twitter. Get the with times and find something else to complain about.
