    Hi malu, welcome to the SP forums.
    Why would you want to know that?
    And why don't you start the discussion by telling us which do you prefer, and why?

    nah, i think the old facebook profile is more useful and practical. The new timeline is really confusing and not so user friendly for new users.

    Why? What changes privacy-wise if you activate timeline?

    I agree that the timeline is very confusing to me. I took about a three year break from visiting facebook at all. Every time I end up on a page I can't find what I am looking for if it involves the timeline.

    Facebook keeps on changing its interface. I think they've gone too far with the timeline. I personally prefer the old profile. Simple and easy. Wish they'd give us that option to choose.

    I was one of the first to sign up for Timeline, but haven't moved over yet. They will have to drag me kicking and screaming because I hate the way it looks. It makes all my friends pages unreadable.

    Timeline. Have set it weeks ago and it's really nice. Love that I can put a great photo in the header and it's overall better looking than the old style.

    I don't like timeline because it provides a historical break down of peoples life which could be used in a negative manor. I don't want people to be able to openly analyze my behavior and personality throughout the cycle of my life. That just seems dangerous though I am certain that Facebook does disclose that information for marketing but openly is a whole other story. I don't understand how this goes above people heads considering most people disclose enough information on Facebook o write up a psychological profile and timeline makes it that much easier. Maybe I'm just thinking to far into it.
    The only code I hate more than my own is everyone else's.

    Old Profile is much better than the new timeline. It is quite simple and easy to use.

    I am currently using an old Facebook profile. Though I admit that the Facebook timeline really looks good, but base on my observation every time I go to my friend who is using a timeline, their profile page is taking some foul time to load unlike those who are using the old profile.

    I liked the new profile. It allows us to make our profile look more attractive. Also, if you work little bit on your timeline like adding special events then profile becomes your diary with beautiful memories.

    Despite the great debate against change, I do like the new timeline. It gives your page a more personalized feel and I do love that banner you can customize on the top.

    I guess, I can ask this here. Can you get back a profile from Timeline to normal Profile? How?

    Please help. I really hate the new Timeline Profile.


    Thanks.

    I like Facebook timeline, as it gives a complete information on one page. Along with that time line gives an improved look and feel for the visitors.
    There is nothing to confuse, if you don't want to share something, just hide it from Facebook timeline.
