Facebook Profile Picture hack – Use two profile pictures at the same time

Last year we had posted about Facebook profile picture hack that would let you see 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:

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

So now lets 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)
