How to Disable Facebook Timeline?

Facebook is being revamped yet again with the new Timeline feature and for whatever reason you are unhappy about it. Perhaps you are happy with how things are or perhaps you are concerned about being overexposed, or maybe it’s some other reason. The point is you want to disable the Timeline feature and just hold onto Facebook as it is. So can you in fact disable Facebook Timeline?

Here is the short answer: Nope. It’s not going to be possible.

Yesterday I reported on the introduction of Timeline and that it will go into effect for everyone in 7 days irregardless of whether or not you opt-in or not.  However, that is not quite the case.  Facebook contacted me and clarified that,”The opt-in period for Timeline will last for a few weeks so people don’t need to activate it right away….”

So essentially you have a “few weeks” of reprieve from joining Timeline if you so choose. All indicators are that there will not be an “opt-out” option.

I hope that answers your question. Please let us know how you feel about the coming change in the comments section below.
