  1. Since most people activating Timeline now are doing it legitimately, this method is outdated and will not work at all.

    Kudos to you for misleading people into hitting up your website.

    1. Hi El Guesto, We are actually not misleading people to get bounce hits. Facebook has officially launched their Timeline feature few hours ago and the above said step fails to work as you see your Official FB Timeline after deleting the developer preview.

      We have tested while writing this article and it worked for us. No more trick to delete the timeline.

      Sorry about the inconvenience.


  2. Hello Ariana,

    Unfortunately Facebook have not enabled roll back option so far. We have to wait to see for any changes to happen in near future.
