What happens when you switch back to the classic Facebook page layout?
It is important to be familiar with what happens when you switch back to classic Facebook page design.
The most important thing you have to know is that all Facebook posts, images, videos that you have posted under the new Facebook page design, won’t be available if you switch back to classic Facebook page design.
When you change back to classic Facebook page, Facebook will also stop all of the ads you have started under the new Facebook page. You won’t be able to restart them under the classic business page. You have to launch these ads from scratch.
Before switching back to classic Facebook page layout
As we have shown, you can switch back to classic Facebook pages if you want to do so.
However, keep in mind that you might lose the Facebook posts that you have posted under the new Facebook page design.
For this reason, you might want to download the Facebook page posts to a safe place. We have a tutorial on how to download Facebook pages.
Also, Facebook is likely to deprecate this feature of changing back to the classic Facebook page in the future. So it is very likely that there will be a point when they no longer will allow to use the classic Facebook page design.
So we would actually recommend familiarizing yourself with this new Facebook page design as it might be better to start using it now than later.
Can’t switch back to classic Facebook pages
Facebook might no longer allow you to switch back to the old Facebook look.
Unfortunately, if you can’t go through the process, we have shown you above, there is nothing anything you can do. You are stuck with the new Facebook page layout.
