  1. Thanks for this marvellous instruction.
    I just have 2 more questions:

    1) is it possible to change the colour of the "frame"?
    Currently, Facebook just gives me the option of a boring, ugly grey...

    2) Does the "layout" option also work on a computer (laptop) - or just on the mobile app?
