Facebook's New Profile Page - A Creative Way To Use It

Are you on facebook? Have you tried the new profile page? This is a fun new tool to tell others about who you are, or just be creative. If you are wondering how to use it, see this post, try it out, and impress your friends with how creative you are!!

Have you upgraded to the new Profile Page on facebook yet?  Instead of having only a profile photo, the new profile page has five additional photos across the top.

 

new facebook profileThe photos across the top are your five most recently tagged pictures.  If you want to remove any of these photos, roll over them and click the "x" in the top right corner.  These photos are only visible to the people selected in your "Photos and videos you're tagged in" privacy setting.

People who are not allowed to view your tagged photos see photos from your profile picture album instead. People who are not allowed to see either your tagged photos or your profile picture album don't see any photos at the top of your profile.

 

 

 

Thanks to Photojojo, I found a fun way to creatively use the new Profile format. 

With a free template from Pic Scatter you can choose one photo to fill all six photo spots on your profile.  This template allows you to control what will be in those boxes, instead of photos you're tagged in being put there automatically.

The template is very easy to use.   

1.   Click  "Create a Profile Picture"

2.   Click  "Upload Picture"

3.   Drag picture to position it.  Use plus and minus signs to change picture size.

4.   Use plus and minus signs to enter number of lines of text.   (this determines the position of the five small pictures) See my photo above - there are three lines of text under my name, so I entered 3.  If you want the row of pictures higher or lower, just change the number.

5.  Click "Publish to facebook"  

To return to displaying tagged photos - simply check the box  "Remove old scatters" and then click "Publish to facebook.

There are so many ways to have fun with this template! 

NOTE:  You must upgrade to the new profile before the template will work.
