There are a lot of changes in Facebook lately, small and large which you can read about in great detail at TechCrunch.
Here are a few:
- A stream of your recent tagged photos appears at the top of the screen, and there are more pictures of your friends on the page. This is because the main problem with Facebook is that there weren’t enough opportunities to see pictures of people.
- Now there’s a field on your page called “philosophy,” which folds in your religious, political views and favorite quote. Plus a brand new field: “People Who Inspire You.” (If you put Mark Zuckerberg you should be able to get access to a special Super Facebook.)
- All your vital stats are squished up under your name in a list now. It actually looks pretty good, like you’re a character in a Role Playing Game or something!
- There is also a field for sports, if you can somehow fit physical activity in between checking your Facebook profile
- Tabs bring up different sections of your profile. Tabs: So hot right now.
I’m going to show you how to create the “Famous New Profile Hack” using GIMP
Start by picking the picture you would like to use.
Take a screen-shot of your Facebook profile
Paste the first picture you chose to use in step one as a new layer
Now grab the GIMP side ruler and drag two guide 200 width and 600 height
now grab the select tool and copy in between the new guides
and select Edit-> Paste as new image.
save that new image as profile.jpg
now create a guide for each small picture in the profile
I decreased the opacity of the original picture just to see if it will align properly
Now with the select tool grab the first box
and paste it as new image
copy each box and paste as new image for the rest of the boxes.
Now we should have 5 small pictures and the long profile picture
Go to Facebook, Create a album and make sure “EVERYONE” is selected
Upload the picture labeled profile.jpg and make this your profile picture
We are almost done
now start tagging your photos
start from last to first
Select the last pic and tag as yourself
You are done. Wasn’t that easy
