You can customize your Facebook profile, without actually affecting the underlying site, by using a layer application with your browser.
What’s A Layer App?
Layer apps such as PageRage create virtual layers on existing websites that can be edited to create the appearance of having made changes to the underlying website (in this case, Facebook).
No HTML or CSS coding knowledge is needed. Simply install the Facebook layers app into your browser and in just seconds you will have access to hundreds of graphic styles, colors and themes to choose from.
However, only people who download the same browser app can see your custom Facebook themes. Any other visitors to your profile just see the regular Facebook layout.
How Can I Make My Own Facebook Layouts?
Most layer app sites offer pre-made layouts with choices for popular holidays, movies, singers, and so on.
But let’s say you have a special thing for your little Robbie in Water for Elephants, but all you can find are Facebook layouts with Robert Pattinson from Twilight. No problem. You can customize your own layout with a Create Your Own Layout (CYOL) tool.
These layer app tools are so easy your 13-year-old niece can create her own layout in five minutes and she probably has. In fact, more than 40,000 people around the world now create Facebook layouts every day.
Facebook Layouts In The Future
From abstract to anime and from vintage to video games, you can take your Facebook to the next level (or should I say layer?) with a layers app. And this is only the beginning!
In the future, many layer app companies predict users will be able to add music and videos to their Facebook profiles. So you can include clips of R-Patz in Harry Potter or songs from his ill-fated awesome attempt at music from the Twilight soundtrack on your profile too.
