Getting Started: Update Profile Picture and Cover Photo

The best way for others to recognize you is to have your Profile Picture added to Facebook. Your profile picture is the picture that friends see next to your name everywhere on Facebook and your cover photo is the large image at the top of your profile that you can change out and make it fit your personality.
