Update Dec 24th 2011 : Finally Facebook rolled out new facebook timeline feature for everyone. Now, you don’t need to follow this lengthy process to enable Facebook timeline on your profile. All you need to do is, Follow this tip to enable Facebook timeline profile.

So, you sat home last night and watched the f8 Developer Conference like a regular geek. You definitely must’ve heard about the new and improved Facebook profile called Timeline that they announced at the conference yesterday. Well, looks like it’ll take months to reach out to everyone who’s using Facebook. However, if you were truly impressed with new Timeline profile, then there is a way that you can try it out right away to see how and what it feels like.

The Timeline, is pretty amazing and beautiful to look at. It’s also a great tool for a stalker as the Timeline features everything that you’ve ever done and will ever do on Facebook. Even though it’s all cool and pretty to look at, it does take some time to set it all up, so I’m not really sure if regular Facebook users take all the time to get the Timeline setup. That said, the new layout is more of a visual experience, the story of your life, your story that you’d want to share with everyone.

So, if you’re one of those who want to try out the new and fresh Facebook Timeline Profile, then here’s an easy tutorial on how to enable it even before it’s available to the public. To do this, you’ll need to enable Developer mode and even create an app, but don’t worry, it’s pretty simple.

  • zx

    Its easy!
    If you want to remove the App u created thru developer App, just visit then click on Edit app button of the app which you’ve created and click Delete App. Your Facebook Timeline App is deleted and your profile is now back in the old Facebook Interface.

    If you wanna remove/uninstall the developer app totally from your Apps/Privacy Settings, Just go to scroll down and click “Remove Application” and confirm the same by clicking on Remove option and you should see the confirmation window as “You have removed Developer.”
