Update from Slashgear.com: Facebook has confirmed to us that there is no way to return to the old-style profile once you have switched to Timeline. Those who choose not to opt-in to Timeline will be automatically updated.
“Facebook’s opt-in period will be available for a few weeks” a Facebook spokesperson told SlashGear. “After that, we will begin moving the people who have not yet opted in over to the new profile.”
So yeah from that update it basically says either change now and get a jump on it or we are going to change it in a few weeks anyway. So don’t think “well I don’t like it and I’m sticking with the old one” Not going to happen. There is no way in hell Facebook is going to let some users have one type of profile and other users have another.
It’s official! Today Facebook rolled out the new timeline. You know what that means right….. Your wall is going to be flooded with people bitching and moaning at how much they hate it, it sucks and they are leaving. Didn’t we just hear all these morons complain with the new wall rollout a few months ago. I even remember some saying “I’m leaving if they don’t change it back”. How the fuck did that work out for you?
I have been running the new timeline for months now. I got the developer code and think it’s pretty AWESOME!! It is WAY different then before but once you get over the initial shock of it the flow and setup is pretty simple. It’s very clean and more like a personal blog then just a lame social media profile page. Trust me, you will grow to like it a lot. Don’t be a hater like everyone else is going to be. I could sit here and give you one of those “oh you can do this” “you can do that” and walkthroughs but soon enough you will figure it out.
My understanding is that right now the new timeline is something you have to “opt” in for but I’m sure soon enough they will roll it out for ALL users like they do with most things. It was the same for this past profile and just about every change Facebook makes. For a few months it’s by choice then Facebook made the change for everyone. So listen, get a jump on your moronic lame friends and make the change. For more information and to make the jump check out the link below. You can be a pioneer. While all your friends are wasting time complaining about how it sucks, how much they hate it, you can spend time getting to know your way around, learning the new stuff and be that much ahead of the game. Listen, I know I have some old ass people who read this post. Do this before your kids even do it. So in a couple days now when they call you and say “Hey mom you know Facebook is about to change the profiles and before you freak out…..” You can cut their know-it-all hipster ass in mid sentence and say “Yeah I know, I’ve been running it for a while already, it’s pretty sick” and it will blow their fuckin’ minds!!!
And for he love of god!!!!!!! “Facebook” isn’t a person so honestly when you type something like “Facebook better change the profile back or I’m leaving” there is no one reading that but your friends. Listen morons half of you have your pages set to private!! This Facebook person isn’t even your friend!?!?! If your post isn’t even PUBLIC how the fuck do you think anyone other then your 50 friends are even going to see that post? Who the fuck are you even talking to?!?!? So please stop with the messages to this “Facebook” person, they aren’t changing it! Esp with a silent outcry on a private page asshole. Fuck, do I really have to keep teaching you people this stuff???
Enjoy the new profile change and instead of getting your little cyber panties in a bunch once again, just sit back, enjoy the new look, get use to it for a few days and enjoy your moronic friends freaking the fuck out over the change. Maybe you will look at all those posts in a different way now and instead of being a sheep you can actually get some enjoyment out of everyones freak outs! Trust me, this is like a personal Xmas gift from Facebook for me!!! I get so much of my motivation from the crazy people on Facebook this will keep this blog going well in to the New Year!!
