A few days back, Facebook added a new feature called “ProfilePicFrames” using which you can add a temporary frame overlay on profile pictures for a specific time. The frames actually let you show support or appreciation for various purposes like sports, entertainment, social cause, etc. via your Facebook profile pictures. The frames offered by Facebook are listed in various categories like General, Bundesliga, La-Liga, Entertainment, Movies, Music, Causes, etc. In this tutorial, I will explain how to select a frame from these categories and set it as a temporary overlay on your profile picture.
Apart from showing how to set a temporary frame, I will also let you know how to set a temporary profile picture for a specific time on Facebook.
How to Set a Temporary Frame on Facebook Profile Pictures:
Step 1: First, open Facebook on your PC and sign in by entering your credentials. After that, you need to go to the ProfilePicFrames page to choose and set a frame over your profile picture. On this page you will see a drop-down menu on the left of your profile picture using which you can browse the frame categories.
Step 2: As soon as you select a frame category, all the available frames of that category will appear. Now, you can select any of the frames which you would like to add on your profile picture. You can simply click on a frame and see the preview on your profile picture on the left.
Step 3: When you’re done selecting a frame, simply click on the drop-down menu at the bottom where it says “Switch back to previous profile picture in”. On the drop-down menu, you will see the following time intervals: 1 Hour, 1 Day, 1 Week, Never, and Custom. So, you can use the predefined time to set the temporary frame or click on the custom option to choose your own time.
Step 4: Now, let’s say you want to keep the temporary picture frame for more than 1 week, then simply click on the custom option and set a date and time for the temporary frame. After that, the frame will appear on your Facebook profile picture until the time period runs out and it switches back to the original picture.
