Second, go to the area of your profile directly below your profile photo which looks similar to the image pictured here and click on Manage My PageThird, click on the Appearance Link which should be in the middle of the page as pictured here.Fourth, you'll see three options -Basic, All Options and Advanced. If you are unfamiliar with CSS and HTML I would avoid the Advanced tab. However, by changing the attributed on the other two tabs, you can change virtually every aspect of your profile including colors of links, background images, sidebars and icon colors.

Don't get frustrated- with a little bit of trial and error you will have your profile just the way you want it in no time.
