Yontoo Adds Layouts to Facebook With Release of PageRage Super Profile Application
Facebook users: Looking to customize your profile page? If so, a company with a peculiar name, Yontoo Technology Inc., has created a new Facebook Application that makes it possible. The new Facebook App PageRage Super Profile builds off of Yontoo's PageRage product which was released in August. It works with their Yontoo Layers technology which creates a virtual layer over webpages that can be edited by the user. PageRage allows Facebook users to customize or artistically alter their Facebook profile for a unique look similar to the customizations available for other social networking websites, such as MySpace. Users simply go to www.pagerage.com to download the software. Yontoo's PageRage has only been available to the public for a few weeks but already has more than 10,000 users.
"We understand why Facebook doesn't provide users with the ability to add layouts," says Stuart Nowell, Co-founder of Yontoo, "and we agree with the decision. The beauty of our software is the fact that, unlike layouts for any other social network site, if people don't want to see the layouts they don't have to. No one that does not have our software installed will see the layouts or be affected in any way."
PageRage allows Facebook members to place graphics right on top of their existing page. This layer has no effect on the original page. No coding or HTML knowledge is needed. The artwork is simply laid over the top of your page and can be changed at any time. There are hundreds of graphic styles and themes currently available with new layouts being added all the time.
"We are very excited about the user feedback we've seen so far and we believe that the new Facebook App will make our system even easier for people to use and share," says Arie Trouw, Co-founder of Yontoo. Arie went on to say that Yontoo will be producing many additional apps adding new functionality in the very near future. "PageRage is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the potential for Yontoo Layers, and we look forward to helping users get everything possible out of their Internet experience."
According to Trouw, Yontoo's PageRage technology is the only way for user customizations of Facebook profiles to be viewable by their friends. He pointed out that "anyone that has Yontoo Layers installed will be able to see the layouts on their friends' profiles."
