No sweat if you use firefox as your browser.... there's an extension that makes it "go away":

I really like timeline. Not sure why all the hate, except it's like every change FB made that everyone ended up liking after 2 weeks.

I still hate that I have to filter 'most popular' and 'most recent' posts. I could care less about what is most popular, I already saw it. Stop making me change it. Jerks.

Lots of people hate timeline.

I honestly don't even remember what it looked like before timeline.

I just got it two days ago, it's a memory hog... but not the devil

It's a competition to see who Facebook can upset more: the users or the people that purchased the IPO.

Off topic, but is there a way to block Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and Barack Obama on FB? Everytime someone likes them a giant picture of one of those doofuses shows up in my feed.

I think you need to turn some friends into "acquaintances".

After initially disliking the idea of Timeline I've warmed to it a bit. I still wish I could make the privacy settings more restrictive but c'est la vie.

I guess people use Facebook in different ways. For me, I didn't see what the fuss was all about; I set a cool cover photo and forgot about it. (It also helps that I never post anything I might feel compelled to hide later.) But then, I have the notifications set up, so I never had to check my own wall to see if anything new was on it.

Smartest way to use Facebook.

I read this in a recent article about FB and I largely agree:


There is a difference between using Facebook and loving Facebook. The company has repeatedly annoyed its users with everything from privacy policy waffles to aggressive ad placements. Facebook is the Microsoft of social media; used by everyone but truly loved by few.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/24/opinion/saffo-facebook-stocks/index.html

It started off as fun as old faces reemerged from the past with little effort but it quickly got boring and annoying. I guess after the newness wore off, it's been a battle of being more trouble than useful. I think FB gets more out of me being on FB than I get out of it and there are some real troubling aspects about privacy and security that I'm old enough to find scary and invasive.
