Hate The New Facebook Layout? Here Is How You Can Change It
By on February 11th, 2010

recently rolled out a new design to users, some of them liked it, some did not. In fact even I am one of the people who did not like the new Facebook layout. However, like always there is no official way to go back to cleanup the new design and get a cleaner look for Facebook.

Most of the solutions are accomplished using scripts. Firefox and support the user scripts out of the box, you can learn how to use Greasemonkey scripts in Opera, IE and Safari.

Unfuck Facebook Layout

UnFu*k Facebook – Previously mentioned Unf*ck Facebook is good to go again with the new Facebook layout. Just download the script and install it and you should see a simple Facebook layout as seen in the screenshot above. Download script here.

Undo Facebook – Another userscript which is similar to the earlier one, Undo Facebook will clean up your Facebook profile page and display a much more simpler and cleaner version of the layout. Download script here.

Better Facebook – Cleans up Facebook and removes the right hand side navigation, ads and more. Try out any of the three scripts and choose the one you like. Download script here.

Facebook Old Navbar – This userscript rearranges the top Nav bar to bring some semblance to the old design. It can be used in conjunction with any of the userscript’s above. Download script here.

Replace Profile with Name – Removes the Profile link and replaces it with your name as it was in the older Facebook layout. Download script here.

Note: The above changes will only reflect in your current browser, it will not be available on different browsers or on multiple computers.

Do you know of any other useful userscript that will help get back the older layout on Facebook? Do feel free to share them in the comments.
