Facebook profile updating
For several years now, millions of people have used their Facebook (and other social media profile) pictures as a tool for political protest (such as those supporting marriage equality in the United States), solidarity with groups (such as the victims of the Paris terror attack in 2015), and to otherwise draw attention to causes, people, and holidays in their culture.
Originally, you had to manually change your profile picture for such purposes–either uploading your own photo or using a Facebook app to create/authorize it–and then manually change your profile picture back.
On the profile editing page, click on your profile picture to change it–when you hover over the image with your mouse, you’ll see the “Update Profile Picture” indicator, as seen below.
If Facebook decides to put in controls at some point, you can always add those details later.In the old days, we could type a summary bio of ourselves in a small box under our profile photo.We could control that space and add a URL if we wanted.At first, the feature might seem kind of dull, but that’s because you are, by default, set in the “General” category which just has a few generic frames.Click in the drop down menu located near the upper right corner of your profile picture to change the category.
