Some 500,000 Facebook users who don't like the site's new design have found a loophole leading back to the old one. The trick is to sign up as a Facebook application developer — and you don't have to even write a line of code! Facebook allows developers to use the old Facebook design if they want, because until every last Facebook user has migrated to the new design, these widgetmakers need to maintain two versions of their applications. Here's how to go undercover and get your old Facebook profile back in three easy steps.

  • Step 1. Add the "Facebook Developers" application (available here).
  • Step 2. Click "Go to applications" and then close the page.
  • Step 3. Follow this link.
