    Seeing it, it doesn't look professional to me, and I don't like it personally. How about you?

    Personally I don't like it either, I prefer their original format. Perhaps it will grow on us however and just maybe we will come to love i :) Sometimes a change from something we are used to can make us feel a little uncomfortable and then once we get used to it we realise that it has advantages over the original version.

    Personally I have never really used Facebook so I never became attached to the old layout. I think in a way the timeline is quite nice and does have a nice modern feel to it however it does seem a bit messy in the layout. It does seem a bit "all over the place".

    The most annoying part, user does not stick to 1 layout, they keep switching to timeline and then return to old style. Personally, I prefer old style.

    I do. As long as you know how to limit yourself and control yourself into using it. Some people just don't know how to make use of it and just add friends and other contact in their profile just for the sake of being popular, without actually knowing the risk of disclosing their profile information across the social network. No one can change your view on it, if you don't look at it as a professional medium for marketing or personal use, it's okay. Everyone has their opinions about FB. Well, in my personal opinion, FB is good cause I know how to handle my personal profile. I know who to accept as friend and not.

    In business purposes or product marketing, I make use of the resources I can get from it at all and that I think it could benefit the site as well.

    Google+ is the new Facebook. Simplicity always wins. You will start to see more people move to Google+ as Facebook becomes more complicated to use. I've already noticed a lot of businesses making the move to Google+ so it's only a matter of time before people start making personal accounts. Google just needs a little time to work out the bugs and make the user interface a little easier to use and then we'll start to see Google+ rise above the rest. Google will take over LinkedIn first, then Facebook next.

    I'm OK with the new layout. Guess Fergal made a good point by saying
    "Sometimes a change from something we are used to can make us feel a little uncomfortable and then once we get used to it we realise that it has advantages over the original version. "

    No changes were made on the FB Fanpage. This is the one I use more often. Yet, I'm open to future improvements :)

    I kind of like this idea. It looks cool in my opinion. I don't think facebook is trying to be particularly professional by this. I think this was more aimed to the personal side of facebook. I think that you don't have to do this is you don't want. There are still many people on the old version.

    I actually like Facebook Timeline. It has much more features. The only thing I don't like about it is it's a bit slower.

    Hello,

    I don't like FTB... I also agree that their will be very advance features in it... if one person switches to the FTB he is not allow to go back to older version....

    I didn't know that, glad you told us, as I was considering making a quick switch to the Timeline just to see what it was like.

    This is pretty much true at all points. Personally, I didn't really like it seeing that my friend's profiles are hard to navigate.
    But once we are forced to use it in a later time, I wouldn't really mind as long as I can use Facebook.

    That's my point. Got me confused the first time I saw it. I am still using the old format for my account.

    I think I found a way to remove Facebook Timeline:
