There are lots of these “showcase” or “inspiration” sites on the web. Some are general “CSS” ones like cssremix.com, cssheaven.com, and the site this one is based on: mixcss.com. There are CMS specific ones like welovetxp.com for Textpattern and Magentique for Magento. Lately I’ve also noticed ones for applications you can “theme” or modify in some way, like Twitter: Cool Twitter Pages.
Since Facebook added “Fan Pages” for businesses and implemented the “tabbed profile” there have been a lot of fun, interesting, useful and generally cool Tabs made to go on these pages (you cannot customize the actual page, just tabs). I went looking for a “showcase” page of these tab designs… and couldn’t find one. I kind of wanted to find one, actually, so I could show off some of the recent work I’ve been doing as a web designer.
So what does a web designer do when he’s looking for a niche site about design and can’t find one?
He makes one, apparently.
Does the world need another one of these sites? I don’t know. It doesn’t matter. It’s already done. If you are here, reading this, then perhaps the world did need another showcase site – one specifically for Facebook.
So enjoy, look around, vote on designs, submit a cool Facebook Tab you found, or submit your own work. The “designer” credit does include a link! And if you happen to be in the business of making Facebook Fan Page apps and tabs feel free to get in contact with me. There will probably be ads on here eventually. *wink wink nudge nudge*
