Facebook Profile Picture Hack: Use 2 Profile Pictures At The Same Time

Last year, we posted about a Facebook profile picture viewer hack that lets you see the large size of the locked display picture. Now we are back with another profile picture hack, that lets you keep/use two different profile pictures at the same time.

This hack basically allows you to change display picture in your Facebook profile while keeping the post thumbnail picture same (the old one). you can take a look at my profile below:

Note: This hack works only for profile pictures. Make sure you have at least 2 or more pictures in your “profile pictures” album.

So now let’s get started with the hack:

Step 1: Go to your “profile pictures” album and open any picture that you want to set as a display picture. Now copy the highlighted code from the URL, as shown in the below picture. (code held by attribute fbid)

Step 2: Now go to your main profile and hover over the display picture. Click Edit profile Picture >> Edit Thumbnail. See below:

Step 3: After clicking Edit Thumbnail, you will get a pop-up as shown below. Now keep your mouse cursor on the thumbnail picture and right-click. In the menu, click Inspect element.

Step 4: Once you click the inspect element option, you will see a lot of HTML code displayed in the lower part of your browser. Now scroll down a bit till you find form tag.

Step 5: Click that small left arrow beside the form tag, which opens all the code under it and now search for the attribute photo_fbid as shown in the below screenshot:

Step 6: Double-tap or click the (yellow) highlighted code as shown above and replace it with the code that you copied in the first step. (ctrl+v to paste). Once you replace it, hit Enter and click the save button in the Edit thumbnail popup window.

That’s it! You will now see two different profile pictures simultaneously in your Facebook profile. If you get stuck in between, do comment below. I will be happy to help you. If you liked it, please share it with your friends.
