How To: Customize Your Facebook Page Timeline with Custom App Icons

Comments: 15

  • Thanks! With the ability to change landing pads having been removed, it is nice to be able to draw some attention to custom web pages.

    • Hi Juanita,

      Unfortunately some application developers do not allow you to change the application image. Our applications allow you to add any custom images that you like.

  • hello –

    I am working on customizing our FB page and want to change the icons for our tabs. You mentioned that your application allows someone to add any custom images we like – how do I get that application? Thank you ….

  • I have been trying to do this for an organization I work for it when I follow these exact step, the Edit Settings window is completely missing the Custom Tab Image link and the Custom Tab Name. All it has is the “Tab: Added: Remove”. Do you know how to fix this cause Facebook Help Center has been zero help.

    • Hi Hauna,

      Which application are you trying to change the icon for?

      Some Facebook developers do not allow you to customize their application icons. You are also not able to change the icons for the native Facebook applications (likes, events, etc..)

  • Hi, I have the same problem as Hauna. When I follow the same steps and click on “edit settings”, there is no “custom” tab. All there is is ‘profile’ and ‘additional permissions’. This is just on the standard facebook apps – video, events etc. I have seen other facebook pages with these same apps customized. Has facebook decided to remove the ability to customize with our own icons?

  • Sorry, I just read the former post more thoroughly and realised that you mentioned that you can’t change the icons for the native facebook applications. I had seen a facebook page that appeared to have customized icons for the native apps, but now I realise that they had just used ‘photos’ of their logo which showed up on the icon.

  • I would LOVE to add some custom app icons to my facebook timeline PROFILE page. Is there a way to do this, or are all these cool features ONLY for Facebook business pages? There’s gotta be a way!

  • Thanks for these instructions. But for some reason when I get to the edit settings, all I see is the Tab: Add (Remove) and nothing else. Why is that?

    Thank you!

  • The font on my facebook page is too small for me to read Have I done something to change it or is it in the fault of my server Please tell me how to get it back like it was

  • can I change the friends icon where a big male and a little female are present. I want to put a new, more equal, gender wise, icon.
