Facebook has announced that will soon be adding support for short videos as profile images for users. These videos will be very short and playing in a loop, similar to what Instagram and Vine does with their videos.
To be able use the feature, you will need to do it from Facebook’s iOS or Android app, which when available will allow you to record and set the video as profile “image”.
Facebook will also be introducing another new feature that will let you schedule your profile images for a set period of time. After the time is up, it’ll go back to your default image.
