I spend a good bit of time on Facebook goofing off with my friends, playing on my Farmville farm, and doing the occasional bit of promo. Since I’m one of those who enjoys playing with graphics and tweaking everything to suit me–I’ve been let down by how little personalization FB allows.
Enter this latest upgrade… Now you have a couple of options. I’ll show you two I use to let people who stumble across my page know who I am and what I do. 😉
Now FB allows you to have an elongated profile picture, (long picture on the left) which could be new or it could have taken this long for me to notice it. And even then, I didn’t notice it–Vic did. Anyway, if you have a bookmark template for one of your books, this would be the perfect place to display it. I didn’t, so I threw together a generic banner. I used the cover model from Everlong’s cover since people are so used to seeing her in my thumbnail. lol
The other cool thing you might have noticed is how I have a quote from Evermine running across the top of the page. The new FB displays any five pictures you’ve been tagged in. So I made a banner with the quote and chopped it up, then downloaded it backwards (from right to left) and tagged myself so it would display in that gap. Pretty cool, huh? I got the idea from this application, but since it only works half the time, I used the same trick and made it permanent on my page.
If anyone is interested, I can post templates and “how-to” instructions for each. 😉
