Don’t get us wrong, Facebook is an extremely useful way to keep in contact with friends, arrange events and promote brands – it’s just not all that to look at.

The Facebook team keeps it’s design minimal, partly to reduce page loading times but also to ensure each feature gets its own specific part of of the layout – but part of of us really wishes it had a little bit more colour, perhaps a few gradients here or there.

Luckily for us, DevinantArt user *jonaska has gone to the trouble to show us exactly what Facebook could look like with a bit more style. We particularly like the Birthdays widget and the way the comments/likes are presented.
