How to Change Your Profile Picture on Facebook

Your profile picture is the face that you show the world on Facebook. When someone receives a friend request, they see the picture. Wall posts show up in your friend's new streams with a miniature version of your profile picture. This picture may be anything that suits your fancy, such as an old school picture, a brand new picture, a photo of your pet, virtual art or something of your own creation.
