Facebook has announced a new feature ‘profile videos’, This feature allows users to upload very short and looping videos which is something similar to GIF which will play whenever someone visits your profile or page.

After the success of  ‘Celebrate Pride’ profile picture uploaded by Mark Zuckerberg to support Modi’s Digital India campaign Facebook is introducing more interesting features for profile pictures in which users will be able to upload ‘temporary’ profile pictures and it will be set as normal profile picture after a set amount of time.
