Have you ever wanted to jazz up your Facebook profile? While the social network does not allow themes, there are many utilities that let you add a theme to Facebook. One of the better tools for doing this is My Facebook Theme.
They are both by the same developer and work well with one another to give you the most pre-made themes, along with the ones you create yourself.
Once both are installed, you can open the extensions to either utilize a pre-made theme or create your own. There are a wide variety of pre-made themes to choose from. In other wordss, you have many options for adding a theme to Facebook.
You can open My Facebook Theme from Facebook with the handy little link added to your top toolbar.
Creating your own themes
My Facebook Theme’s biggest asset is being able to create your own theme. While this is a very simple theme maker, it can make a big impact depending on what you want to do and the time you have to be creative.
The first part of the Editor deals with the Background.
You can choose the color of the background or use an image. If you use an image, you can choose whether it scrolls or stretches across your Facebook page or how to tile it for the best fit possible. Then, you can choose the image position if you choose to center it or off-set it.
The second part of the Editor lets you change how the primary Facebook toolbar looks.
You can change its background color and link color.
The final part of the Editor lets you change the links, text and header colors of your Facebook feed and profile.
Depending on the type of changes you make and the background you use, you are given a lot of leeway in the color choices you make to get just the right match.
These changes, along with the pre-made themes you may end up using, will be utilized across all profiles and pages on Facebook.
Using pre-made themes
My Facebook Theme also utilizes pre-made themes. These come in a variety of categories from cartoons to nature to holidays and more.
They are easily implemented by clicking “Install” on any theme.
If you want to uninstall a theme, go back to My Facebook Theme and click “Uninstall.” You are then free to install another pre-made theme or create your own.
You can also take a pre-made theme and make it more your own by customizing it with the “Build Your Own” option once you have installed it.
Sharing your themes
After you create your own theme, you can save it to My Facebook Theme by linking the two via Facebook.
You can then switch in and out of themes as you see fit but still keep the creations you have worked hard on.
You can also share the theme with others through social networks and if they use the extensions, they, too, can use it to theme their Facebook.
My Facebook Theme used to be available for Firefox but is no longer supported for the browser.
My Facebook Theme is a great way to customize your Facebook experience, especially if you are bored of the everyday look of the social network. You can add a theme to Facebook by using pre-made themes, tinkering with them or creating your own which gives you creative control over what Facebook looks like.
