If you’re a long-time Facebook user then you’re probably fed up of looking at that same blue and white page design, day after day, year after year. You needn’t suffer any more because now it’s actually possible to change the color scheme of the Facebook interface.

Follow the steps below and you’ll have a new-look Facebook in no time. Not only will the Color My Facebook application give you a break from that blue design, but you’ll also look cool and original too. Give it a try and see what weird and wonderful Facebook color schemes you can create.

1. Download and install Color My Facebook

Color My Facebook is a free extension for the Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer web browsers. Visit this page from your regular browser and click the Install button.

2. Set your color

Once the Color My Facebook plug-in is installed it will automatically detect when you load Facebook and apply a new color scheme. Clicking the options arrow on the top-right of the page will give you access to the Color My Facebook settings.

When you click this option you’ll be asked to ‘Pick your color,’ which you can do by clicking on the colored square.

3. Preview your result

When you select a color, the changes are applied to Facebook in real time, so you can directly preview the result of your choice.

Click the Finished button to apply your choice of color to Facebook. If you want to revert back Facebook’s original color, just disable the extension or enter the official Facebook hex color code: 3B5998.
