Recently facebook updated their Photo Viewer a couple of weeks ago,personally i didn’t quite like it and many of the users over the most popular social networking site were complaining about the same over the Discussion boards.
Though currently we don’t know how to completely disable that feature but there are a few tricks which we can use to switch back to the classic photo viewer of facebook .
- If you have already opened an image which loads in the new Photo Viewer you can just hit the F5 button to refresh the page and get back to the classic photo viewer .
- You can also right click the picture and open it in new window to avoid opening it in the new viewer.
- Or you can delete the ” &theater” part from the photo URL to avoid opening the photos in the new viewer .
All of the above tricks work perfectly fine for switching back to the classic view.Lets hope facebook rethinks on the new photo viewer and try and bring a better one next time around.
