Facebook Hack : Switch Or Turn Off Facebook Lite To Default

I was using Facebook when I saw the ad on the side recommending me to switch to Facebook lite for a faster and better user experience. So I clicked on it hoping to change back to the regular Facebook interface once I was done with exploring Facebook Lite. Facebook lite is an simplified version of Facebook, that lets you use facebook without the clutter of various Facebook Applications spamming your Wall and Feed. But the funny thing is there was no link anywhere which I could use to switch back to the regular interface. I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to Switch off the Facebook Lite Interdface change back to the default Facebook interface. I could see that the URL of the the Facebook Lite page was http://lite.facebook.com/ and when I tried entering http://facebook.com/ it would redirect me back to http://lite.facebook.com/. After a lot of hunting around I found a couple of solutions.

Official way to Switch off Facebook Lite

On the top right hand corner before the search box you’ll see two small icons, the first on looks like a spanner click this, this will take you to the facebook lite settings page.

Facebook Lite Settings

Now click on default site

Facebook Lite Default SiteFacebook Lite Default Site

Select. When I go to Facebook.com, show me, Regular Facebook. and click save you should be done. You also have the option of checking Let me switch between regular Facebook and Facebook Lite If you select this option, a blue bar will appear at the top of Facebook that enables you to switch back and forth between the two versions i.e Facebook Lite and the default Facebook Interface.

Use The Facebook Feeback Form

Scroll way down to the bottom of the facebook lite interface at the bottom you’ll see a small link called feedback click this., You’ll see a new page at the top it will say Looking to get back to the regular Facebook? Just click here. Just click the given link it should turn off the Facebook Lite interface and send you back to the regular Facebook interface.

Other Methods are listed below but not Guaranteed to work.

Change Facebook URL Link

You’ll notice that the Url has changed to http://lite.facebook.com/ just change this back to http://facebook.com/. This doesn’t work all the time you can try to use http://lite.facebook.com/home.php

Clear Your browser Cookies and Cache

Clear your browser cookies and cache and try logging into facebook again, the facebook lite interface should be gone now.
For Internet Explorer users go to your menu bar and click Tools –> Internet Options –> Delete Cookies and Delete Files
For Firefox Users go to your menu bar and click Tools –> Clear recent History –> Select all the options and click Clear all

I was lucky to find it right away^^

I think they should turn the field into a button and integrate it into the normal toolbar. And I still miss the “post link”-button…

But it’s still a beta, isn’t it?

Well lucky you. the geek in me panicked for 5 mins thinking I might have changed it permanently ha ha ha. Yes its still in beta and yep they should have a button to switch between the default and the Lite interface, though you do get that option after you set it up.

I personally really enjoy the design and layout of Facebook Lite. Current facebook has become so crowded that the UI is no longer clean or simple. =(

Facebook Lite is a pleasure to use, but might be over simplified for most people who are used to the standard interface.

Btw, love the font settings for your blog. The post is looking amazing on a Mac with Safari. =)

Well the site looks good on a Mac because it was made on a Mac ;). Jokes aside you have no idea how much time I wasted trying to make it look decent on IE 6 and IE 7. Though I must admit IE 8 didn’t cause me much trouble. And the site looks pretty decent on Vista and WIn 7 and IE 8. Fonts on XP suck. Even with clear type on.

I think they finally made it so it doesn’t auto switch it to lite when you click on the link.

Thats great if they did, but I can still see that by default they set it to facebook lite.
