Facebook disables ‘old Facebook’ workarounds

Facebook has today disabled workarounds to the “old Facebook” layout. Previously, installing Greasemonkey on Firefox and an additional script, or installing the Developer add, would get you access back to the old layout and not have to see Facebook’s ugly new look.

Despite over 2,100,000 people joining a group asking for 1,000,000 against the new layout, Facebook has once again said “screw you”, and appears so hell-bent on the new layout they’ve disabled these workarounds — and have even disabled the old facebook for developers. Quite ridiculous.

Time to boycott Facebook

Facebook intends to force the “new Facebook” on all its users next week. They’ve effectively told easily 100,000 people — at least — “screw you, we don’t care about what you think”, and they obviously haven’t bothered to take into account any of the feedback people against it have been sending them. Time to boycott the ugly new Facebook, then. You’d think that they’d be smart enough to know that the current look is an asset, but apparently not.
