How to Set a Temporary Profile Picture or Frame on Facebook


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 making awareness about social campaigns and organizing people against evil spirits in localities.

Facebook profile picture change is the easiest method to inform the people what’s in their mind. Such a change is temporary and will long last some days or a week.

Facebook lets users change the profile image temporarily. After the scheduled time, it will be reverted automatically to your regular photo.

Firstly, go to your Facebook profile and hover over the profile photo to get Update Profile Picture option.
