Agreed.  I’d like something that shows my personality off!  It’s so uniformed.

This is not an attack against you, but I have to emphatically disagree — it’s one of the main reasons I left MySpace for Facebook! I do not want to be surprised by music and glitter, and I don’t want to wait 5 minutes for blinkies and graphics to load. It’s bad enough that the applications take over the newsfeed; I swear I block a new one everyday. I miss the days of Facebook being more about communication than self-divulgence. I appreciate that Facebook is different than MySpace, and I think that different needs can and should be met on different websites.

I’m kind of glad there aren’t glittery blinky things too.  I got the new skins for Firefox which sort of dress up any webpage I go to though!

I think you should be able to pick your own theme, like how igoogle works! that would be nice and refreshing! Or like you said, just a background color…. I hated going to someone’s myspace who clearly messed up the html on their page and everything was jacked up and hard to read lol

I pretty much HATE myspace.  It’s the most useless website on the planet.  I love Facebook, but every revision they come out with makes it worse and worse.  Facebook 1.0 was great because it served a perfect purpose: show who you are and what you are doing in a snapshot.  I actually like how uniform it is, so I can find what I’m looking for on my friends’ sites.  But all the new stuff…meh…not impressed.

Heh, I always wish my FB could be pretty-fied too, but I know it’s for the best. I know I wouldn’t go overboard, but I know a million others would lol I do with they could make it like the new Firefox browser templates. If FB could make so many you could choose from, but not let you make your own or add a billion ugly things, that would be much better.

I used to spend HOURS making my myspace pretty and perfectly coordinated, so I’m happy that temptation doesn’t exist for facebook!  Eek, so man hours wasted.  But I did have an awesome background/color combination 😀

Amaryllis, I agree with you 100%. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Totally interesting point that I hadn’t considered.  I guess that would make it fun.  I’m sure that’s only a few changes away—they’re always updating and improving.
