Facebook always came up with some new ideas. The latest features to be launched are the Facebook Frame and Profile Picture Guard. This post will highlight the subject if you are wondering what they are and how to enable them on your profile picture.
Add a Frame to Facebook profile picture
A frame is nothing but an extra layer on your existing profile picture that people often enable to show support to a cause. For example, you might have seen that some people add a Club’s frame to show support. Similarly, many developers often release a new frame so people can show their support or customize their profile picture with a new look. If you are wondering how to add a frame to your Facebook profile picture, here is how to do that.
Log in to your Facebook profile and go to your Profile. Hover your mouse over your profile picture to get the Update Profile Picture option. You need to click on that option.
Now, you should find an option called Add Frame.
You can select a frame from the left sidebar or search for a frame if you know the name. To try it out before applying, click on the frame in the search result.
That selected frame will be applied immediately if you click the Use as Profile Picture button.
You can even add a frame for a particular period. Before clicking on the Use as Profile Picture button, you can select the time. You can choose 1 hour, day, or week or set a custom date/time.
Enable Facebook Profile Picture Guard
The latest inclusion of Facebook is Profile Picture Guard. There are many spammers who try to create a mirror of your Facebook profile and create a bad impression in your friend circle. In most cases, it has been found that the spammer is using the current profile picture of the original account. Therefore, to protect your profile picture, you can enable Profile Picture Guard, which helps users in three ways.
- Nobody can download or share your Facebook profile picture.
- Those, who are not your friends, cannot tag your profile picture.
- A blue border will be added to your profile picture, which defines that other people should respect your profile picture, according to Facebook.
To enable it on your Facebook profile, you need to follow these steps on your Facebook app for Android. This feature is not available on the web version of Facebook.
Open your Facebook profile and click on the Edit button on your profile picture. You should find an option called Turn on profile picture guard.
After that, you need to click on the Next and Save buttons. After completing this process, you will find a blue shield around your existing profile picture. This feature is now available for all users across the globe.
How do I make my whole picture fit in a circle on Facebook?
If the image is too large, you can use the Scale or Zoom slider to fit the photo in the circle. While it is not the best way to fit the image, if you don’t have the option, then you can use it. The right way to do this is using an editor like Canva, which allows you to create Facebook profile images with frames, and so on.
How do I change my profile picture on Facebook without anyone knowing?
When you change your profile picture, it asks you to share the image. Make sure you don’t do it. Apart from this, you can also configure privacy settings for your profile pictures as Private.
