A few days ago, we reported that Facebook would be forcing its new Timeline look on users. With many people against the feature, a series of scams detailing how to ditch Timeline have appeared on Facebook .
Facebook’s new Timeline feature started rolling out late last year to people in Australia, changing profiles to show a date-based history of life on Facebook. Starting with the year you were born, Timeline shows every status update, photo, and item you’ve shared since you started using the social networking service.
While many have embraced the new feature, there are also some who oppose it, and these scams target those people.
Simply searching for “remove timeline” in Facebook yields plenty of pages and so-called apps that purportedly return your Facebook profile to its original look. These are scams, however, using the Facebook clickjacking technique to hijack your profile and post more links and scams to your page with Timeline kept in place.
