How to Add a Temporary Facebook Profile Picture



It is fun to change your Facebook profile picture once in a while. After snapping a few selfies, there are good photos worthy to be up on the pedestal – in the case of Facebook, profile-worthy!

But, if you want to express yourself for a short period of time without changing your current profile picture, you can do so! Facebook has a feature that will enable you to set up a temporary profile picture that disappears after a period of time.

It does not have to change your photo on your Facebook timeline. The idea is to edit it with expressions or designs that will tell what you are standing for today or what you are feeling. For instance, if you want to stand for saving climate change, you can add frames or filters on your profile picture that says about it.

Your edited profile picture does not have to live forever on your timeline profile! After a few days, weeks, or months, it will revert to your old profile picture and erasing the frames or your new photo.
