In trying to further put our presence on facebook, I've been wanting to "customize" our pages. I've got the standard user page, but then have created some fan pages. Not sure how that will play out regarding how many fan pages we should have.
I'm in marketing not coding, but I do have some knowledge of HTML. So, my question to my good friends here is, can/will someone please point me in the right direction for my being able to customize the look, feel, presence of our pages on FB?
In looking at it, I see where I can just put in URL's which point back to our site, but I think there's a certain ambiance of being on FB while learning more about someone socially. Whether that be a person or a business. So, I would like to be able to create a more directed presence on FB.

I think Facebook have made a decision to not allow much in the way of page customization. They want the entire site to have the same look and feel. This ensures ease of use and navigation within the entire site. When you look at other social networking sites such as Bebo and especially Myspace you will see a lot of very ugly pages that distract the user and make the site useless from an accessibility and more importantly usability point of view. By having a standard look and feel the user experience is improved.
