Facebook is one of the most popular social networking sites on the internet. You can choose to change the interface of Facebook, to make your social media presence more interesting. The method employed to change your Facebook interface depends on the web browser you use. If you are using Google Chrome, simply download a file extension, install, and restart Google web browser. Firefox has a choice of many interface designs for Facebook. Download the plug-in, install it, and run it. Select the design and load it as a Facebook page. For Opera go directly to the page and select the one you like, load it as user script and open a Facebook page. Internet Explorer does not support Facebook interface changes. Therefore you will need to opt for another web browser if you wish to change it. Apple's web browser Safari 5 allows changing the font and leaving out the ads on Facebook.
