A Skin is the look of a Snake during Gameplay. Some skins can only be obtained by using Extensions, but those skins can only be seen by other players with the same extension as you. There are 66 different Skins in Slither.io, and you no longer need to share to access them.
You can gain access to all skins if you share on Facebook/Twitter, but you can simply click them, and go back to the page without logging in, and then choose your skin.
Please note that you cannot automatically pick a Skin until you share, and if you do not share, you will automatically get randomly assigned one of the Default Skins when you click the Play button.

Slither.io has a mode "Build A Slither", where the player can create their own custom skin to suit their wishes. You have 28-46 (sometimes when you edit, it changes) customizable spaces, and 38 colors to choose from. Since its creation, it has become immensely popular, and many players have created their own unique skins to identify themselves.
