I am not sure - I mean the option that they offer if you want it - sure why not - they have to change the layout and have to be creative and all - but this is way too radical and I heard it from so many people that they dont like it - and then in another forum I got this answer ': if you dont like it - dont use facebook' - so helpfull dont you think?
I also know that nobody liked tagging photos and the newsfeed when they came out, but people came around. Timeline isn't going anywhere. People are so addicted to this stupid site it doesn't matter what they introduce.
I quite like the timeline to be honest. And I think its gong to be a situation where at first users may say they dont like it, then just carry on regardless. Its more or less a different way of displaying the same information.
As an example does anyone remember the navigation links here used to be on the right? well there was a lot of complaining at the time, but now its just normal.
If I click on my "HOME" link it asks if I want to switch to Timeline. I haven't yet but I know people who jumped at the chance to add their own graphics there. I remember when everyone was all upset about the look of the page changing, mine always had the links on the right so I am starting to think that the FaceBook I use is some beta model. Maybe they shuffle every nth signup to their test server? They are probably disappointed at the way I use it.
If adding it is an option, there must be some way to remove it. OTOH if you didn't choose it, there may be no way to get rid of it.
