What is a Facebook profile picture?

A Facebook profile picture displays everywhere your account appears, it’s a means of identification by your friend or any other person who sees you on the social media platform. Your profile picture appears with your name when you make a post or comment on someone else’s post, it also appears on the top left of a page while someone chats with you, with these, it’s easier you identify you on Facebook.
What to keep in mind
Before changing your profile picture on Facebook, you should keep two things in mind, do you already have a picture in your device you wish to upload? Or you want to take a picture at that moment? While trying to change your picture, Facebook gives you an opportunity to snap at that very moment and upload, so if you wish to use this method, you’ll prepare for a snap.
