Facebook Profile Hack

Posted on December 20th, 2010 by Jean

Artist Alexander Oudin is credited with creating the new Facebook phenomenon, profile hacking. In essence, beautifying fb profiles by cropping a single photo six times, tagging yourself in five, and making one your profile avatar.
 

 
Hundreds have jumped on the bandwagon, and the results are highly entertaining.
 

 
Applications are popping up to slice & dice your favorite photos, making a snazzy profile page. I used Pic Scatter to create mine using the awesome “Kitty In A Tree” picture from last week. Another app that looks handy is FBCrop.
 
If you’re like me, you’re going to waste spend a lot of your day uploading pics and playing around with these apps. Have fun, and let me know what you create!
 
Here are a couple I made yesterday while I could have been cleaning the house, watching football, and feeding my family.
 

 

 
Don’t blame me if you do not get all of your errands accomplished.
 
• Will you hack your FB profile?
• Would you rather friend request Burt Reynolds or Kim Kardashian’s Ass?
• Have you finished your Christmas shopping?

  1. I’m surprised Kim K’s butt only took up four of the pics on the right. Personally, I’d friend George Costanza before Burt Reynolds

    Pop, that’s hilarious! What an observation. ROFL! On behalf of the Costanza family, let me wish you a Happy Festivus!

  2. I’m home all day with a sick kiddo so I might have a little “free” time to play around. This is pretty funny.

    Thanks, Charlotte! I was surprised that Burt’s Moustache actually has its own fan page! Bwahahahaha!

  6. Oh man, I think you got me with the hook…..
    Really? I had no idea about this…I guess I need to spend more time on “real” facebook and not the mobile version.

    I. Am. Intrigued.

  8. If you’re like me, you’re going to waste spend a lot of your day uploading pics and playing around with these apps.- Jean

    I think you were right the first time (with “waste”). By the way, how do you stroke-out words like that? If I ever get my website off the ground, (see: Frankenstein’s Monster) I most certainly want to know how to do that.

    Will you hack your FB profile?

    The day I go on Facebook is the day I kill myself. I think the same holds true for most people, if only metaphorically speaking.

    Would you rather friend request Burt Reynolds or Kim Kardashian’s Ass?

    I’m not sure if I’d touch Kim Kardashian’s ass with a 10 metre pole held by Burt Reynolds. Who knows where that thing has been to get her “career” where it is?

    Probably 98% of these so-called “friends” are nothing more than place holders, a way of padding one’s statistics to make these losers who waste their entire lives on Facebook feel better about themselves.

    “But I have so many friends here.”

    Exactly.

    • Have you finished your Christmas shopping?

    Don’t get me started on that bullshit.

    Sedate Me, put the greater than/less than symbols around the letter s or the word strike to cross out words.
    Can hardly wait to see your website.
    The bullshit of the season is nearly over. Let’s get to 2011.

    Sedate Me Reply:

    Thank you ever so much, Jean. I’ve been wondering how to do this for years. I figure this means I owe you some oral sex martinis for showing me how. I don’t consider that too high price to pay.

    Regarding the re-animation of my currently necrotic website, like I said before, be VERY careful what you wish for. It could easily become an out of control monster.

    [Reply]

    Sedate Me Reply:

    Er, let’s try that again. (Is it a new command for each word? Or is there no / in the tag closing?)

    I think I owe you some oralsex martinis for that tip.

    Sedate Me Reply:

    Motherfucker!

    See. My lack of mental stability technical ability has severely limited my career volunteer work as a supplier of website content.

    Jean Reply:

    Sedate Me, you did it! Sorry for not replying sooner, but I am glad to see strikes in your comment. Now, yes, you owe me one of those martinis.

    Sedate Me Reply:

    Yeah, it took me several attempts because I have anger issues the “s” command didn’t want to work, only the “STRIKE” command did. Like most HTML, I’m sure I’ll fuck this up a lot in the future.

    But, yeah. If I’m ever in Vegas, I owe you some oral sex martinis. I know that’s one of your true passions in life, so I’ll be sure to keep that promise.

  9. Oh my gosh that is AWESOME.

    Hi Sunny! Yes, I found a plug-in to make it snow on my site. I love it! Not sure when I’ll turn it off.
    Love you too!

    Jean Reply:

    Haha, Jason, your ear? Oh, I’ll bet you’ve picked a great photo to slice & dice. Now you have to watch for people tagging you. That tends to mess up the visual effect. 🙂

    [Reply]

  16. GENIUS! And do I dare admit that I didn’t get what people’s pics were doing all sliced, etc? Go to the profiles. See the whole picture. Riiight. *Sigh* You taught me something new today, Mama! LOL 🙂

    [Reply]

    Jean Reply:

    Glad to have taught you something, Galit! I admit, when friends change their profile pics, I’m looking to see if they’ve done this trick.

    [Reply]

  17. That’s pretty cool. No I haven’t hacked my profile yet. At first, I thought this was a blog about how that app is a hack job! I’ve been so busy with xmas preparations, that I haven’t had time for much else. But now that everything will be slowing down and Santa brought me a new Canon PowerShot S95 I might just be trying this out!

    Lol @ your comment about cleaning the house, feeding your family etc.

  18. This is fun, but I could easily see this becoming addictive! LOL!

    Thanks Jean!

    Marian, I found it addictive too! You have so many great pics to choose from.

  19. Oh, wow. Something new to distract me from what I should be doing.
