Want Classic Facebook? Try Mobile

Some people still don’t like the modern-day version of Facebook. There used to be a number of extensions that would set the look of Facebook back to its classic days, but most of them don’t seem to work anymore.

One that kind of works is one called Themes & old version (layout) for Facebook. It’s a Chrome extension that changes the top bar into the more traditional blue Facebook look. That’s all it changed on my page anyway when I tried it out.

There is another way that somewhat gives you the classic look and that is to use the Mobile version. It’s simple to use. Instead of going to www.facebook.com, you go to m.facebook.com

Replace the www with m.

If you ever use the Facebook app on your phone, you should be familiar with this layout. Here is what my login screen looks like:

This is a screenshot of Facebook using the mobile interface:

To get to the menu options usually on the left-hand side of the Facebook screen, click on the hamburger menu or three lines stacked in the top right-hand corner of the page. Now you’ll see the Facebook menu options.

To log out, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Log Out.

I’ve gotten used to the modern look but for those who haven’t, does anybody know of an extension that still works? If so,  drop a note in the comments.

Exit mobile version
