Facebook allowed its users to add certain filters and frames to their display pictures to show support for sport teams, causes and movements. But Now the social media giant enables users to add their countries’ flags as well.
This update lines up with Mark Zuckerberg’s manifesto to turn Facebook into a platform for unified global community.
Facebook spokesperson said in a statement:
Whether you’re showing support for your favorite sports team or solidarity with a cause or movement, profile frames help you express yourself. Now we’re adding flag frames to the mix, in addition to the frames people will be able create on their own thanks to our Camera Effects Platform.
How to Add A Flag to Your Facebook Display Picture
The social network on Thursday added nearly 200 country flag frames, which users can temporarily or permanently add to their profile pictures.
You can either add flags for the web version or the mobile app versions as well.
Facebook has rolled some pre-existing frames for flags HERE.
For mobile users:
Users can simply tap on “Add Frame” on a user’s own profile picture from Facebook’s iOS and Android applications.
For the users who are following pages or people that are using profile picture frames, they can tap “Try It” button and it will add the identical frame to their profile picture. Users can also use drag and drop to reposition the flag.
