I think everyone knows what the standard facebook looks like, its plain, simple and well boring. Now you can change the look up and it's really easy to do. There are like 300 custom skins to choose from. Not only that but you can do all types of custom changes on your Facebook.

Here is a Standard old Facebook, notice the ads on the RT side - hate them!

Here is my Facebook with the skin added to it, notice the ads on the RT are GONE!

Now does everyone see this? NO just me. In fact for me everyone's Facebook has a touch of pink and no ads on the side. I wish everyone saw it, but hey I'm just glad I don't have to look at the ugly blue. Now you don't have to go with pink - I just picked that. They have over 300 skins to choose from. Ok so your asking what are they, well its a Firefox add on:

Boost for Facebook 9.4.0

There are some other cool features for this add on. Like if I hover over anyone's thumb nail pics, it will auto enlarge it for me on the side, when you hover your mouse over the pics. Not just my friends pics but if I do a search of someone and I want to check out their friends they display


(yes that is my cat. My test Facebook is a profile of my cat "Clyde TheKitty")

Here is what it looks like with the search and I hover my mouse over their friends

There are so many options you can add to this - you can make it that you auto poke people when you go to your home page, There are like 30 different options. When you add this addon it will place a little icon at the bottom of your screen. Clcik on that and you can change your settings around - super easy to work. Here is the icon it adds and what it can do

I love this addon - so check it out and enjoy it!

OH I love it but like I said I picked pink (actually it was called heart) but there is hundreds of different ones to pick. Now not just my profile is pink but any profile I go to is that way. It just changes it up some - I hate the bland boring blue they use.

Re: Change the look of your Facebook with Skins!

Your pink page is really pretty. Smile

Just to verify, the only person who can see these enhancements is the user, right? Otherwise, the view remains the same standard view for those friends who view your profile?

Are you leaving yourself open to any vulnerabilities or exploits by downloading the skins?

Welcome to Geekdrop Mirror Smile

Yes you are correct you will be the only one who will see the new look and you will see it on any facebook you look at but for anyone looking at yours they will see it the old standard classic way. The skins are a Firefox addon and nope no exploits. Your fine, I use them and I haven't had any issues.
