Place the target URL where you see the "xxxx" and the direct link to your uploaded Photobucket image where you see the "yyyy." Place your images' pixel height and width where you see the "##" symbol.
Videos are another great way you can easily customize your Facebook profile using static FBML language. Like images, there is a maximum width of 520 pixels.
swfbgcolor="000000" imgstyle="border-width:##px; border-color:white;"
imgsrc="http://img.youtube.com/vi/xxxxx/2.jpg" width="520″ height="400″ />
The 'xxxx' you see is the video ID on YouTube, or the code you see after the equal sign in the following YouTube URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtFUX4ynYac
You can also customize your "swfbgcolor" and "imgstyle" settings to your preferences. And as you can see, you can also adjust how tall and wide the video will display on your page. Like images, there is a maximum width of 520 pixels.
Last but not least, you can also set your FBML box to be your profile's default landing page. Do this by going to the "edit page" link underneath your logo and go down to the "Wall Settings" area. When you click on that link, you will see a section titled "Default Landing Page for Everyone Else." What this does is direct visitors who are not currently fans of your business to go to your FBML page and direct your current fans to your Wall page.
Like the web in general, success on Facebook requires some level of customization. Static FBML is a powerful tool that helps you do this.
