Log into your Facebook account. Go to the Applications section and search for the "Facebook developers" application.
Add the application to your account. Once the application has been successfully added, go to your applications page.
Make sure the Facebook developers application is there, and then close the browser.
Reopen your browser and log back into Facebook. Once you have logged in go to http://apps.new.facebook.com/?fbnew_opt_out=1.>
Confirm your opt-out. Your Facebook experience will automatically be changed back to the old format.
Tips and warnings
- If you want to go back to the new Facebook, you can always remove the developers application from your profile.
- This is only a temporary fix. Because Facebook is trying to bring everyone on board with the new system, this will work only for a little while. You will eventually be forced to use the new system.
