I know its probably to wishful, but is it possible to make custom look of facebook profile like diferent background in a way that visitor sees it. anybody have any idea?
No, thank god…
Fortunately facebook didn’t allow you to modify any of the design.
Why? Take a look at myspace, there is no consistency which makes it hard to navigate. Facebook wants the site to be as easy to use as possible, so it gets as many users as possible and therefore as much money as possible
haha sure, in the end its always messy. to bad that its not possible at least for designers.. for example twitter did a good job its still clean in the end
Hey Daniel! Lucky you having my name there….lol..kidding…
It’s possible to change the FB design but through scripts. There are a bunch of them that will change the look and feel of wall, FB home, but not the change of the bkg you are looking for.
If you drop me a line through me profile, I can share with you something that may be interesting if you are looking for something similar to the FB design.

Yeah I know what your saying, there are some good twitter designs but there are also some bad, repeating ones.
I’d rather have a twitter which doesn’t have background images 2,000px wide and is always there. Over a twitter which allows you to upload big backgrounds but 30% of the time you see the fail-whale.
DeviantART doesn’t allow users to change the design of their profiles (with he exception of journals) and I’m sure there are a lot more designers / creative people on dA than facebook.
@Daniel_R I was going to suggest using browser scripts but he said “in a way that visitor sees it”

lol…..you are right!
I wanted to castumise my client profile for marketing purposes so if users can not see it, its useless
Now I got your point….my bad…lol
You will need FBML (Facebook Markeup Language) to customize your fan pages. Activeden has a FBML file (I think its a mix of flash and FBML ). Search for the term “FBML” on Activeden (Cannt post here because of the forum rules)
I did one customization to one of my pages, pretty simple though. Check it out here
Here are some learning resources to learn FBML :
- Nathan Latka teaches FBML and you can check his FB profile. He is very kind and will help you with the basic questions.
