Get Old Facebook back with Old Chat Box, Wall and more


CryptLife is back! I’ve been very busy with my exams and I’m back with some interesting posts to be shared with you. I thought of sharing this method with you earlier but due to my busy schedule for past 20 days, I was not able to write any content on CryptLife. I recently noticed the new Facebook chat which looked moreover like an iPhone conversation. Though the layout looked neat, some readers emailed me to share method with which you can get old Facebook back. On keeping this in hand, I came across a tool called “SocialReviver”. It allowed to change the entire appearance of Facebook.

The SocialReviver is a Google Chrome extension which can change your Facebook to a classic display. Most of the people were not satisfied with major updates introduced on Facebook. The timeline update, though it was very much useful and unique way to list out each and every activity by time, it was not welcomed by people who save internet bandwidth. And, that is why people started to use some separate browser extensions that changed their Facebook timeline to look like old styled wall.

SocialReviver not only reverts your Facebook timeline to wall but also reverts back to old features which were available on Facebook. To use the SocialReviver extension, you just need to install the from Chrome Web Store.
