A fairly new bit of technology is being rolled out by yontoo layers. The software allows you to customise your facebook landing page or indeed all your pages.

You can use the stock images provided or use your own designs or pictures of loved ones,pets,or places.

I think the loved one option would be great on facebook for say relations that have moved abroad.

The pets option is not for me as I am surrounded by them. he he

OK here is the clever bit, Although the image appears to be on your facebook it actually runs in your browser. Warning not all browsers are supported.

No technical expertise is needed to install the software so no issues their.

Here is the big plus it is free although it is supported by adverts, Or you can pay a couple of bucks for an advert free service. (I did).

Here we get to the very interesting bit. It is rumoured that all social networks will be going this way soon, Bearing in mind there is no interaction between your social media and the software it would seem a no brainer it will take off. The possibilities would seem endless.Myspace,Beebo,Twitter,Plurk and so on.

So don't say I did not warn you.

Lets get down to brass tacks me being me thought everyone will want to look at hydraulic pumps,scrap metal grabs ,concrete pulverizers etc.

It would seem not so. HmmmmpH.

I emailed pagerage a few times with my wild computer aided design demolition equipment drawings. Seems they were not impressed.he he

So knock yourselves out they are no affiliation to me, And even if you just want to add pictures of your loved ones on facebook it is worth a trial. I can not tell you it is virus free etc etc but I am using it myself.

So without further a do I will bore the bejeebas out of you with some of my designs.

Ripper tooth

Ripper tooth

Above is a ripper tooth designed with computer aided design software. This one is on 80 mm pins and would normally be fitted to a twenty tonne backhoe. They are usually used for ripping out rock from quarries where the point is used to get into cracks in the rock. They are also used in demolition for ripping up slabs.

To be honest this is a fairly easy thing to design but for some reason I really like the look of it.

Here it has been added in pagerage as my facebook page.

Interesting idea. Sounds similar to what twitter allows for their customisation. Thanks

Your welcome mr-burns. I have had no problems with it although I have heard some horror stories about some other similar applications.(there are not many yet) Including not being able to remove them from your computer.

Hi Stugod,

So let me see if I understand this.

It acts as a sort of background wallpaper that strips out the Facebook background, and leaves the active elements on top, of the new wallpaper of your choice. (in your case CAD drawings) and this wallpaper is dynamic i.e. it changes?

It can run ads too?

You pay to take the ads out?

Tell me can you earn from the ads?

Fascinating hub really kept me interested all the way through. Well done and voted up.

The software runs in your browser but looks as if it on your social media. My designs were not meant for it so reading the text on your page is not always an easy process. I can change all the backdrops on mine to a more friendly environment. Mine were originally to highlight the equipment. Early days about earnings as I take the view of get it out there and see how it rolls. The potential seems truly staggering if it rolled out across all social media. They have produced a leader board which I am on, Although not in the top ten. I paid two dollars not to have ads, But if they do not bother you leave them on. I will post a link to the software provider here.

Thanks for introducing me to this new process. I wouldn't mind changing the look of my Facebook profile page, though I don't want others advertising on it unless I get a cut of the action. Duh! Later!

As I said I am not into affiliate marketing kosmo. But the idea seems so good and such a massive market that it sure is an exciting concept. I did email some guys (Neverblue) about my stuff. No answer from them, So I will just carry on doing designs. See what happens.

Indeed, customisation used to be a thing of the future; is now current. Thank you for sharing…
