A new way to stand out

Taking steps to stand out on social media can often be the difference between success and failure. Everyone has a different idea about what makes your profile stand out and these ideas vary again from platform to platform. One of the newest ways to make your profile picture stand out on Facebook is to use their temporary profile picture frames.

What’s new with Facebook’s frames

Previously, these frames were available to sports fanatics and worthy causes across the globe. Now, their images have expanded to include a few Hollywood blockbusters, like Star Wars, and other charitable foundations. Before, when you went to look for a profile picture frame, it was difficult to see all the options. You almost had to know what you were going after, in order to find it. In most cases, Facebookers saw a frame on a friend’s page and wanted the same thing for their own profile.

In an attempt to make this easier, Zuckerberg provided this link in an embedded Facebook post. From Facebook.com/ProfilePicFrames , users can access a pull-down menu that provides them with all the available options for temporary profile picture frames.

Snapchat has been using frames for quite a while and it is a good way to differentiate yourself for other users. Now, it seems like Facebook is fully on-board with profile picture frames. Originally, there were only a handful of frames available. Currently, they have rolled out hundreds of frames from which to choose.

Why you might want to try them

Aside from showing support for your favorite causes, companies, sports teams, or life events, when you select a profile picture frame, it re-engages your followers. Every time you update your profile picture (unless you choose otherwise) it posts to your Timeline.

The same is true when you add a frame to an existing Facebook profile pictures. When you add a frame, it effectively draws your followers back to your page as they receive an “update” that you have added a new picture, even if it’s the same image with a new frame. This makes a quick, easy, way to draw your followers back to the page without the need to create new content.

Have you had a chance to take a look at the temporary Facebook frames? What do you think?
