Since 2004, Facebook has gone through dozens of makeovers, some -- like the recent revamp that converted all profiles to the new timeline format -- more drastic than others. Though the social networking site is never constant, one thing remains the same -- there is always someone who absolutely hates the newest update.

Sometimes change is good, but other times we just want things to stay the way they are. Take the timeline, for example. Some quickly adopted and switched over before the change became mandatory, while others resisted it until the very end.

Though there are tips and tricks to resist change and keep as many of your favorite features as possible, for the most part, Facebook users are at the mercy of the whims of Mark Zuckerberg and his development team.
