Facebook's New Profile Page -- How to ' not accept ' ?

What does one do if one does not want the new Facebook profile?

I understood that Facebook users would have a choice.

Now I have a message that says Profile page be automatically changed in a few days. Can't figure out how to "not accept" ....

For the month of December, Facebook gave people the option to upgrade to the new profile early.

The new look is now being rolled out to all users (450 million). It's not a VOLUNTARY choice. What's good for facebook is good for you I guess.

Lots of complaints as there always is with any change.

I just recently read an article on that and how it was set default to share which is just ridiculous.

I highly recommend this site for anyone using facebook
Get Protected

I copied this info from one of the other forums I am on

"NEW PRIVACY setting called "Instant Personalization" that shares data with non-Facebook websites and it is automatically set to "Enable." Go to Account >Privacy Settings > Applications and Websites >Instant Personalization > Edit Settings, and un-check "Enable". BTW if your friends don't do this, they will be sharing information about you."

according to some of the latest articles today was the date that it was to be changed on all facebook pages.

I personally stay away from all things facebook

I got that message today. So I went ahead and switched over
to the new layout. Was no big deal. I don't think it
changed any of my privacy settings. Other than my profile
page everything else looks the same to me.

Pooh, you are right, no big changes, but the checkmark that RC was refering to is there and as long as you leave it, you info will be shared...

It bears repeating:
NEW PRIVACY setting called "Instant Personalization" that shares data with non-Facebook websites and it is automatically set to "Enable." Go to Account >Privacy Settings > Applications and Websites >Instant Personalization > Edit Settings, and un-check "Enable". BTW if your friends don't do this, they will be sharing information about you."

Oops! Thanks to RC who posted directions in prior post. Just saw genes post when thanking. So thanks to RC for posting those directions.

I would like to add for anyone who joins and invites friends and family to meet them there, please ask your friends by email, don't let Facebook do it. My stepdaughter allowed Facebook to do it and now they have my family and friends email address. I got all kinds of emails from them until I bounced them back.

I knew about the Instant Personalization setting.
I have it unchecked. Been that way for a LONG time.

I went back and checked my privacy settings.
None of them had been changed.
Even the Instant Personalization setting was the same.

Facebook got my master account address that my step daughter has been using for years because she is "family".

Do they automatically get all the addresses in her address book or does she have to give them to Facebook?
