Facebook frames are a great way for users to personalize their profile picture, and now Facebook has added frames to promote COVID-19 vaccines.
As COVID-19 vaccines become more widely available across the country, Facebook is launching new profile photo frames so people can encourage their friends and family to go out and get vaccinated. While scientists and government health organizations have already confirmed the safety of vaccines, some people are still hesitant to get them. With these profile picture frames, Facebook is hoping more of its users will be encouraged to come out and do their part when they see people they know are also getting vaccinated.
Facebook first launched profile photo frames in 2015, allowing users to add a custom overlay to their existing profile photo. A tonne frames have been added since then, including holiday themed frames, frames promoting charity and much more. Facebook tends to create frames around major world events, making new COVID vaccine frames a natural fit.
To obtain the COVID-19 vaccine framework, Facebook says doing it is incredibly easy. From a desktop computer, go to the Facebook website, click the profile icon in the upper left corner, click the profile picture, then click “Update profile picture.” On this next page, click on “Add a frame”. For the Facebook mobile app, tap the three lines at the bottom right of the screen, tap “View your profile”, tap the profile picture, and then tap “Add frame”. You have a choice of two frames: one that says “We can do this – I got my COVID-19 vaccine” and “We can do it – Let’s get vaccinated”. Both frames are also available in two colors, including blue and magenta.
Tips for using Facebook profile photo frames
While using a Facebook profile picture frame is a fairly straightforward process, there are a few tips to keep in mind when adding one. For starters, profile photo frames can be added permanently or set to be automatically deleted after a certain time. On the desktop, click the “1 month” drop-down option to toggle between an hour, a day, a week, a month, custom, or never. Setting a frame on the mobile app will make it permanent by default, but users can tap on the “Make temporary” option and choose a time from there.
Additionally, Facebook gives people the option to add a description / post to share when adding a frame. For example, when adding the COVID vaccine framework, someone may want to add text explaining why they received the vaccine and offer words of encouragement for others to do the same.
