^Oh trust me, me and most of my friends have been steering clear of that dreaded button for some time. Timeline snuck up on me 100%. Apparently my profile looks fine for everyone else, but it will revert to Timeline in a week. I wish you both the best of luck in evading the Timeline contagion.

It's getting harder. FB keeps throwing more and more "suggestions" of Timeline every day. But I shall keep fighting the good fight to keep my page in its correct format! :p

Timeline isn't too bad really. I like the layout and the ability to customize everything. I got it during the developer preview to avoid having to deal with it months later when it was rolled out to everyone. I'm pretty much used to the layout right now so it's not that big of a deal.

Maybe it's just me, but Facebook changes really aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be.

They describe it as a "chase" now rather than a duel.

Maybe it's just me, but Facebook changes really aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be.

Timeline is a pretty big switch compared to most. Honestly, what irritates me is this: Who the hell ever complained about the old Facebook walls? What on earth was wrong with them? They were simple to read, easy to use, and very well organized in a chronological fashion. Timeline, imo, is none of those things.

I know it's insignificant in the scheme of things, but the whole change to Timeline really does bother me.

I wonder how people would feel if Facebook still had their original timeline, where anybody could edit anybody else's posts.

That sounds terrifying and absolutely awesome, both in equal measure.

Since we're ranting, people that fight Facebook changes like they aren't going to have to switch anyway are just silly. Plus, Timeline is the best thing to happen to this site in a long, long time as far as I'm concerned.

Now, the "read" messages being sent to people I don't want to talk to when they message me...that's another story.
