Facebook now lets you choose from hundreds of profile picture frames

Last year Facebook added the ability to set temporary profile photos in support of a cause and later made it possible to add other types of frames by visiting pages, like those of sport teams, that supported it.

Today, Mark Zuckerberg shared that there’s a new way to browse all the available causes, teams and other photo overlays available on the social network.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The page shows all available profile frames from across Facebook, including those from charities like WWF, sports events and movies in once place.

It’s not clear how a company can get its own frame, since it’s only supported for major sporting events, movies and causes right now, but some empty categories such as “birthday” hint that there will be more in the future.

If you’re desperate to get some branding on your own profile photo, head over to the new profile pic frame picker here to browse through everything that’s available.

Update: Facebook told us that it’s partnering with “select pages” right now which are able to offer their own frames, but the company plans to release a self-service platform that lets pages upload their own designs for filters in the “coming months.”
