How to Set a Temporary Profile Picture or Frame on Facebook

Sharing is caring!


We use Facebook profile pictures to express our support and solidarity towards a protest or a cause nowadays. Social media plays a key role in educating people about social campaigns and organizing them against evil interests.

Facebook profile picture change is the easiest method to convey a strong message to the public or let them know what’s in your mind.

As you know, Facebook allows users to change the profile image temporarily. A temporary profile picture will last for some days or maximum a week. On expiry, it will be reverted automatically to your regular profile picture.
