I’ve never been a huge fan of Facebook. I have to admit I’m more of a Twitter gal,yet I know that Facebook allows me to connect with people who don’t like Twitter so I try to update my status as often as possible. When I do, I have to admit I dislike my page. Its very bland. It doesn’t reflect my brand, which is probably one of the reasons I don’t use Facebook as often as I should.
Thankfully, I discovered Page Rage. Page Rage offers a variety of FREE page layouts, as well as the option to create your own custom Facebook layout.
I chose to create a custom Facebook layout and was able to do so in four easy steps! I noted the steps below.
Step 1: Color
The user is given several colors to use on their title bars, left/right side curtain or the whole page. I opted to leave my tabs white. Note, by clicking the last color on the righthand side you are able to view a greater selection of colors.
Step 2: Image
The user is able to upload an image to use on their title bars, left/right side curtain or the whole page. I used my logo on my left/right side curtain. By using my logo, I kept my brand consistent.
Step 3: Text Color
The user is given the option of changing their Title text colors. I used the basic black to keep it simple. I may change it in the future but for now I am satisfied with Black.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
The user is able to make their profile transarent. By moving the control towards the left you lighten the page, making it transparent. I chose not to use this feature. I prefer my page as sharp as possible.
Below is my end result. I plan to add a little more snazz when I have time but for now I am pleased with my simple changes. I also like that my Facebook Page is now consistent with my blog header. Nice, right?

Note: In order to use PageRage you must download their toolbar. You can always remove the toolbar if you’re unhappy with it; however, I think its a great way to promote yourself, special events and show holiday cheer with different page themes.
