Facebook Tips / Tricks

  1. How Do I Change My Profile Picture?

    The following is part of our series, Facebook Tips, which answers some of the most commonly asked questions about using Facebook. While we hope the tips we share on the blog will be informative, remember that we are unable to answer individual questions here. We'll always direct you to the Help Center for additional information about the topics we cover.

    Last week, my mom called to ask me for help. She, like many of you, wanted to change her Profile picture to one that her old classmates would instantly recognize when they viewed her friend requests.

    You can easily change your Profile picture by moving your cursor over the upper right-hand corner of your current photo and selecting the link, "Change Picture." From there, you can choose among uploading a new picture, taking a picture with your computer's webcam, choosing from an album, editing your current thumbnail or removing your current picture entirely.

    If you want to use a photo in which you're already tagged, just navigate to the photo you want and select the "Make Profile Picture" link at the bottom right-hand corner of the photo. After selecting the photo, you'll also have the option to crop the picture and adjust its size.

    If you are a new user and currently do not have a Profile picture, navigate to your Profile and click on either of the links located underneath the area dedicated for a Profile picture, "Upload a Picture" or "Take a Picture." From here you can either upload a picture or take one using your webcam.
