Facebook is making some changes to user profiles. The Menlo Park company announced that you will soon be able to use a 7-second looping video as your profile picture. To keep its decade-old social network lively, Facebook is introducing five big changes to user profiles, which are viewed 4 billion times per day:
- The option to pin Featured Photos to the top of the profile
- Temporary profile pics
- Easier visibility controls for About info, including a new 100 character Bio field
- A mobile-centric design with centered profile photos plus big sections for photos and friends
- The ability to use a 7-second looping video as your profile pic.
The features begin rolling out and testing today for some users. Together, these changes should make Facebook more visually stimulating and addicting.
