How to Get Back the Old Facebook Layout

Previously Facebook has a simple layout. The stuffs were not cluttered on the screen. Everything was clear. But as the number of users increase, number of friends increase, number of updates increase, then it became very difficult to handle the updates in the simple layout. So Facebook introduced the new timeline layout in which you can view your updates on two columns. And it is obvious that in a two column screen, things will be more cluttered than that of previous. 

Now a question arises whether all the users of Facebook were ready for the drastic change that occurred in the user interface. The answer is big NO. Some people still dislike the timeline interface. If you are one of them then don’t worry. Here is a very good solution for you.
