Pictures are integral part of social media fun like in the case of Facebook where pictures speak volumes often times.

Through Facebook pictures, friends and relative who may have lost contact can easily identify and get connected to someone.

Through them we have an idea of how a person is faring to a reasonable extent. Perhaps that explains why it has become common knowledge that people put the very  best of them on our  profiles.

Besides, some Facebookers will for some personal reasons want to delete completely their profile pictures  but maybe stocked.

This article is to teach you step by step on how to   change your Facebook  profile  picture without any hassle.
